mich's brie with balsamic syrup

IMG_5062 After seeing this on Jalna's blog, I had to try it.

You make a balsamic syrup reduction, and drizzle it over brie cheese.

Well, if you read the recipe, actually you're supposed to fry the cheese to get it oozy, but I took the "lazy man" approach and just took the easy parts of the recipe.

I made the reduction, cutting the recipe to 1/4.

I sprinkled roasted & chopped mac nuts onto our brie slices.

Then drizzled the balsamic reduction on.

So good!

I think our apples are bit too sweet for this combo but it does work with toasted baguette.

Really nice with red wine.

I'm making this again.

I originally ate that at Kincaid's at Ward Center (Hawaii), I loved it sooooo much and was so happy that I found that recipe online. Glad you enjoyed it too! Mich

Yes, the restaurant is still open. Other delish things to try is their lobster bisque and for dessert creme brulee.

Thanks Mich, I'll try these things too :)

I love using balsamic reductions or using balsamic glazes Kat. One of my favorites is making a balsamic-mirin-shoyu glaze for steaks of chicken.

Brie is so easy to dress up and tastes good no matter how it's prepared. Was this a quick snack or pre-dinner apps for you guys?
