Day 183 - Toasted Brie and Apples

I love Brie. It's one of my favorite cheeses.
Soft, supple, delicate and understated.
It is a great cheese to serve at parties with a cheese tray, or just to treat yourself once in a while.
This is one of many way to enjoy it (and use more of those apples!).

Toasted Brie with Apples and Plum Riesling Jam
1. Cut the Flatout Foldit into quarters, lay them on a piece of foil and toast them in a convection oven or toaster at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. This makes them nice and crisp. Alternately you can skip this step by by using your favorite whole wheat/whole grain crackers instead of the Foldit.

2. Slice your apple to a slightly less than 1/4 inch thick and lay slices on the toast/crackers.

3. Slice the log of Brie into 1/4 inch thick slices and lay them atop the apple.

4. Toast them in an oven/convection oven at 375 degrees for 5 minutes, until Brie begins to melt.

5. Let cool for 2 minutes then top with the plum Riesling jam.

I also added some concord grapes to my plate to create two full servings of fruit. This is a wonderful mid-afternoon snack that is easy and fancy : )  For Weight Watcher's it is 4 Points Plus if you use the Light Brie, 5 Points Plus if you use the regular. But what a wow for 4-5 points and a great snack!
