How to Make Instant Pot Brie

Start by prepping your brie as directed in the recipe card below. Place in aluminum foil and then fold it up so it is sealed.

Now you will prep the apple sauce by adding the ingredients into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Place trivet on top, and then sit your wrapped up brie on the trivet.

Pressure cook for 5 minutes with a 10 minute natural release of pressure. Open the lid and carefully remove the brie and trivet.

Turn the saute mode on and thicken your apple mixture.

Pour the apple mixture onto the warm brie. Place crackers and pita around the brie and serve up.

How do you eat brie?

You can eat brie in so many different ways. It is a cheese that is very versatile in flavors you can pair with it.

You can also pair it with other appetizers for a party. Appetizers are always a hit for parties. A few favorites to serve alongside Baked Brie include Olive Garden Spinach Artichoke Dip and BBQ Meatballs.

Instant Pot Beef Queso Dip and Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Jalapenos are a couple of other tasty appetizer recipes that are always a big winner at get-togethers.

Can you eat brie cold?

You will find eating brie cold will be lacking. The texture will not be what you expect. While you can eat brie cold, it is recommend to serve it heated or at least at room temperature.

That way you enjoy the creamy and velvety texture it provides.

Do you remove the rind from brie?

The rind on the Brie is edible, and you can eat it with the soft creamy center of the cheese as well.

If you don't want to eat the rind, you can easily toss it out. The rind will help to keep the cheese held together as it heats in the oven.

Storing Leftover Baked Brie with Apples

If you don't eat this whole Brie right away, you can store the remaining cheese and Brie in the fridge.

The cheese will store for 1-2 days in the fridge. Then you can reheat it up in the oven, microwave, etc.

Instant Pot Baked Brie & Apples Appetizer

Instant Pot Baked Brie and Apple appetizer is a super easy and delicious dish that is perfect for holiday and other gatherings when your oven is already in use for other items.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes

Instructions

    1. Carefully cut the top off the round of Brie and place it inside a round heat-proof bowl just large enough to hold it (see dimensions above). Place the rind back on top of the Brie and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Set aside.
    2. Add the chopped apples, orange, onion, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary, honey, salt, and apple cider to the Instant Pot and stir to combine.
    3. Place the prepared round of Brie onto the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot and carefully lower into the unit with the trivet arms up for easy removal.
    4. Lock the lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to “High” for 5 minutes.
    5. When the cooking time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Once the pin drops and no additional steam comes out, carefully remove the lid before lifting out the trivet and Brie with potholders. Set aside.
    6. Select the Sauté function on the highest setting. Bring the fruit mixture to a low boil while stirring frequently. Heat until the mixture thickens, approximately 2-3 minutes. Turn the unit off.
    7. Remove the foil and the top piece of rind from the warm Brie. To serve, transfer to a platter and spoon some of the fruit mixtures on top. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans and garnish with small sprigs of fresh rosemary and/or thyme, if desired. Serve immediately with gluten-free crackers or crostini, and/or fresh apple slices. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Gluten-free crackers or crostini, and/or sliced apples tossed in some lemon juice to prevent browning
  • For a nice presentation, use a ramekin or other heat-proof bowl just large enough to fit the Brie round (approximately 4½ - 5-inch diameter and at least 1-inch deep).
