McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Pesto Seasoning
McCormick® Ground Black Pepper
I went to 2 stores and could not find the McCormick seasoning. I used a pesto sauce and eliminated the olive oil since it was already in the sauce. Next time I will use more pesto for flavoring but overall it was really goo & really easy!
I didn't like the taste of the pesto on the Brie. I thought it would have been better without it and didn't look appealing for the guests either.
Very easy, very good. I accidentaly left it in the oven too long but it didn't hurt it. Basil and parsley can be used instead of the special blend they suggest using.
This was so easy and was delicious - I used pesto sauce instead of the seasoning - spread over brie and topped with pine nuts then baked - also used 16 oz brie instead of 8 - good thing - the six of us were scraping the bottom of the dish. Thanks!
My guests loved this. I simply used a couple of Tbs prepared pesto mixed with chopped pine nuts as the topping for one, and the other I topped with a sun dried tomato pesto with cracked black pepper to top. A few extra minutes in the oven made it perfect.
I do this without measuring the oil, garlic, pesto seasoning and pine nuts. I leave the pepper out because that's not how I was taught to make it. I basically just make a paste with everything and smear it all over the top of the cheese. I do usually use one large garlic clove that I chop very finely. I also usually use a camembert wheel instead of a brie. I think it's even better than the brie. I slice off the top like instructed, and it works beautifully. I've occasionally not paid enough attention and left the cheese in a little too long. All that ends up happening is it gets a little oozier, but no one ever cares. It's the taste that counts with this recipe! It's quick and easy and something I can always have the ingredients on hand to make.
I used basil pesto and just put 3 tbsp straight on top of the cheese, couldn't be easier. Smells heavenly when cookig looks and tastes great. My oly problem was it was a little difficult to serve, I think cooking it longer 15 min would result in much easier spreading. Overall excellent I will try again
Good and very easy to do. Instead of the McCormick seasonings I used a spoonful of pesto and added sundried tomatoes packed in oil. I took it to a get together and everyone loved it. Will definitely make again.
