"My ex-wife Jamie's been making this savory Brie en croute since way back before we were married. I think she must have gotten the idea from a magazine, but I've never seen the recipe... I just wing it. It can be made with either puff pastry sheets (quick and easy) or phyllo sheets (more work, flakier shell). Serve with fancy table crackers or digestive biscuits." — Merrittorious

I made this recently for a Christmas Eve potluck and it was delish! I forgot my grocery list at home, so I improvised a bit. I also don't like vermouth, so I used a dry white wine (a cheap sauvignon blanc). I followed the directions up to using the phyllo dough. I used a sheet of puff pastry instead, and used toothpicks to hold the pastry together on top. After that, I used a quick spray of Pam on the top and sprinkled rosemary on it. Next time I make this, I will defnitely used the phyllo dough, as the puff pastry did not brown enough/get flaky enough for me. It's delicious! Give it a try! All of the ladies at the potluck asked for the recipe.
Hints: Puff pastry sheets cut the prep time dramatically! You can sub the vermouth for wine or whatever floats your boat.
I keep meaning to take pictures so this recipe gets more popular. It really is delicious. If anybody takes a pic, please upload!
This was good! I could not get a shallot to save my life @ the grocery store, so I subbed green onion, which I thought worked out nicely. I am a lover of garlic, but I think if I make this again, I would cut back, as I thought it was a little too much. I wrapped mine in some crescent dough that needed to be used, perfect! I also had an issue cutting the top off while trying to leave a lip around the edge. Is there a trick to that, lol? I was able to make it work in the end, though. Thanks for sharing. :)
Really good- I added a handful of chopped mushrooms and sauteed them with the shallot and garlic in a little olive oil before adding the vermouth and putting it on top of the brie.
This is a little tricky but really good.
Amazing. Everyone raved about this and asked for the recipe! I used white wine instead of vermouth and puff pastry, not phyllo. Will definitely make this again!
