What To Serve With Baked Brie – 18 Delicious Side Dishes

This article was updated on the 28th of August 2023 for clarity and freshness.

If you’re wondering what to serve with your baked brie, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I list 18 of the most popular side dishes for baked brie.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with baked brie are crostini, seed crackers, marinated olives, and melon and prosciutto skewers. You can also serve filet mignon, apple chutney, and mashed potatoes. Try veggie chips, roasted grapes, sauteed mushrooms, and blistered cherry tomatoes for healthier options.

For each side dish, I’ve provided alternative options to cater to various diets and lifestyles, including vegan, quick and easy, and health-conscious options.

Cheese Board Elements

Thinking of serving baked brie as the centerpiece for your cheese board? You can’t go wrong with pairing it with these classic finger foods!


5.0 ⭐️ (3 ratings) | 13 mins

Serving baked brie as an appetizer? It’s a no-brainer to pair it with a batch of crunchy crostini.

You can dunk the crostini straight into the baked brie, but I personally prefer spreading the melted cheese on it and topping it with prosciutto. Yum!

Another great thing about crostini is that it’s one of the simplest accompaniments you can prepare. You only need a high-quality loaf of crusty bread, olive oil, and cracked black pepper, and you’re good to go. And there’s no active cooking needed — the oven does the work for you!

What readers are saying…

“These are so perfect for so many applications! My kids love to eat these just as they are – like crackers or garlic bread.”

“These crostini sound so delicious and are perfect for the soup I just made tonight for dinner! So excited to make these.”

Rosemary Nuts

Total Time: 40 mins

Make your baked brie more interesting with these rosemary nuts. 

They’re easy to prepare and are highly addictive – you won’t be able to resist snacking on them (I know I didn’t).

Vegetarian Venture uses pecans, walnuts, and almonds for this recipe. You can use unsalted nuts you like, but steer clear of flavorful nuts like peanuts and hazelnuts – they might overpower other flavors.

Serve them alongside your baked brie, or pile them on top for extra flavor and texture.

What readers are saying…

“OMG I loooove rosemary in absolutely anything and everything- especially nuts.”

These look wonderful!! I’m not quite willing to wait until autumn to cover everything in herb-y, rosemary goodness. I’ll have to make these for a road trip soon-ish approaching “

“Yes, these look so good what an awesome snack.”

Seed Crackers

5.0 ⭐️ (97 ratings) | 1 hr 10 mins

Aside from crostinis, crackers are one of the classic appetizers served with baked brie. They’re great for scooping your baked brie’s melted cheesy goodness. But if you’re trying to stay healthy, why not try these seed crackers instead?

They’re completely made from seeds, with the psyllium husk flakes acting as a binder. But no worries, they’re still delightfully crunchy and tasty, plus, they’re gluten-free and vegan-friendly!

Alpha Foodie adds dried rosemary to the “dough” for flavor, but I prefer garlic powder.

What readers are saying…

“I’ve made these crackers a bunch of times now and love them!”

“We absolutely love these crunchy crackers. And soooo easy to make, who knew!?! Trying to eat healthier, so these are a treasure!”

“A friend shared your recipe with me. I love it!! I make it weekly adding herbs and spices.”

Marinated Olives

5.0 ⭐️ (5 ratings) | 2 hrs 20 mins

These marinated olives are among the easiest appetizers to accompany your brie cheese platter.

Aside from preparing olives and the marinade, the rest of the process is simply letting them soak for at least two hours. 

This ensures the olive are infused with the flavors of your herbs. Kim from Low Carb Maven uses a mix of rosemary and parsley, infusing the olives with a woody and slightly peppery kick. This flavor profile, combined with the olives’ natural saltiness, goes great with the richness of brie.

What readers are saying…

“This recipe is so easy and so good!!! Everyone loved the olives.”

“These make the perfect party nibble. They taste great as-is but you could add any herb combo you wanted.”

“I admit, I am a big fan of the olives. These marinated olives were great. I paired them up with some cheese as you suggested. Very delish!”

Spiced Apple Chutney

4.5 ⭐️ (17 ratings) | 50 mins

Spice up your plain baked brie with this apple chutney. It has the perfect mix of sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors that will do wonders to elevate your warm, creamy cheese.

Choclette from Tin and Thyme uses different spices for this chutney like turmeric, ginger, chopped garlic, chilies, and garam masala. Don’t skip any of these to ensure you get the best flavor!

And no worries if you have leftovers. This chutney lasts for up to a year when stored properly and you can even use it in many other dishes like burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches.

What readers are saying…

“I made this chutney last year, it was so good I am making it again this year.”

“Fabulous. I made this recipe twice the second time half apple half pear delicious.”

“I made this over Christmas and held out until now to taste it and it was totally worth it.”

Snacks and Appetizers

Beyond the traditional cheese platters, baked brie complements a wide array of appetizers, enhancing both flavor and presentation. Use it as a dip for veggie root chips or spread it over warm pita bread for a quick and easy snack.

Prosciutto and Melon Skewers

5.0 ⭐️ (8 ratings) | 20 mins

These melon and prosciutto skewers are a fun summer party appetizer to go alongside your baked brie.

The sweetness from the melons combined with the saltiness from the prosciutto makes for a delightful contrast to your brie’s creamy goodness. Plus, the chopped basil adds a refreshing note that keeps these skewers light and refreshing.

Don’t be surprised to see your guests hoarding these melon and prosciutto skewers — better yet, prepare an extra batch!

What readers are saying…

“Loved this quick appetizer. I used mint leaves instead of the greens. Was very delicious.”

Veggie Chips

5.0 ⭐️ (4 ratings) | 1 hr 30 mins

These crispy veggie chips are a great side dish for baked brie. They’re a healthier alternative to typical store-bought chips. Not only are they naturally loaded with nutrients, but being baked rather than fried also reduces unnecessary fats and calories.

You can turn lots of veg into chips, but I prefer using root veggies like potatoes, carrots, yams, and beets.

They’re sturdier than chips made from leafy vegetables, perfect for dipping in the gooey, melted brie.

What readers are saying…

“Success! Excellent results with both yam and beets.”

I’ve made Swiss chard, collards, and spinach (large leaves). OMG are these addictive!!! The key is, as you say, to use low temps.”

Apple Hand Pies

5.0 ⭐️ (15 ratings) | 1 hr 45 mins

Throwing a party and want something sweet to go with your baked brie? Look no further than these tasty apple treats. 

These individually-portioned pies are the perfect party food since they’re easy to grab and go. 

But what I really love about these pies is the combination of the buttery crust and tender spiced apples. Imagine smearing your warm melted brie over these sweet hand pies – sounds like a bite made in heaven, right? 

What readers are saying…

“I have made this so many times and this is indeed the best hand pie recipe. Follow it to a T and you will be successful.”

“They were really good – and have received many good comments from customers.”

“This is my second time making this recipe and it is just delicious. Passed on the recipe both times. Did make rhubarb pies also and they were a hit!”

Pita Bread

5.0 ⭐️ (88 ratings) | 2 hr 15 mins

Already making baked brie with toppings? Make your brie the star with the help of pita bread. 

This lightly sweet flatbread is readily available in local stores, but making it at home ensures you have the softest and chewiest pita

Fortunately, they’re easy to make, with this recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen. It shows two methods, but I prefer the stovetop method because it’s quick and you get more golden spots this way.

What readers are saying…

“Oh my gosh these are so good and easy! I’ve tried other pita recipes but looks like yours is my new favorite.”

“Outstanding! This is my new go-to” pita recipe. Used the stovetop method. Fast, easy and it turned out great!”

“Thank you for giving me a foolproof pita bread recipe .. I’ve tried so many other recipes, but mine never puffed up. With this recipe I got beautifully soft, puffed up, delicious pitas!”

Garlic Parmesan Smashed Potatoes

4.9 ⭐️ (32 ratings) | 1 hr

These smashed potatoes are the ideal side dish to go with your brie for the days you want to indulge.

They’re everything you want in potatoes – crispy exteriors, fluffy interiors, and extra flavorful from the inside out. They’re great on their own, but they’re even better when dripping with the rich, creamy goodness of baked brie.

I don’t blame you if you manage to go through half a tray of these smashed potatoes — they really are that good.

What readers are saying…

“These are amazing. I loved them! I used this recipe with red potatoes and rosemary. The pictures don’t disappoint; it is as delicious as you think it will be, and also really fun, and easy to make.”

“DELICIOUS!!! Will definitely be making again.”

“It’s my new biggest hit with the kids. So delicious !!!”

Baked brie is superb as is, but it’s even better with these toppings. Not only do they bring a pop of color, but they also add extra flavor that elevates your humble baked cheese.

Rosemary Roasted Grapes

5.0 ⭐️ (1 rating) | 1 hr 5 mins

Roasting grapes seems unusual, but it enhances their natural sweetness while seasoning them with rosemary imparts a piney, peppery flavor. 

You can use these grapes as a topping for your baked brie for an Insta-worthy plate or over a crostini smeared with brie. However you choose to serve these roasted grapes, they’re guaranteed to impress!

What readers are saying…

“What a perfect flavor combo! Yum!”

“I love love love this idea! I am always on the hunt for savory uses for grapes, because they are just so good! Can’t wait to try this!”

Balsamic Roasted Peppers

4.9 ⭐️ (47 ratings) | 30 mins

Jazz up your baked brie with these balsamic roasted peppers. Not only are they colorful, but they have an irresistibly sharp, sweet flavor that pairs nicely with your baked brie.

Another thing I love about these peppers is how easily they come together. They require only five minutes of prep because you don’t even need to de-seed or slice these peppers – simply throw them in one baking pan, season them, and then let the oven do the rest.

What readers are saying…

“This recipe is so easy and they taste delicious! I usually add a 1/3 cup of white wine to the pan as well, and either roast or pan fry – both methods are fantastic.”

“This baby bell pepper recipe was WOW!! Better than I expected!”

“I made this last night and was so happy to learn how to cook mini peppers this way. I feel like I now understand their purpose. 🙂”

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

5.0 ⭐️ (1 rating) | 10 mins

You can always stick to the classics when all else fails, like pairing cherry tomatoes with your baked brie.

I especially like blistered tomatoes because not only are they pretty, but they add so much flavor and vibrancy to your brie. The high heat draws out the tomatoes’ natural sugars while adding a little acid further brightens their flavors.

And to finish everything off, you can’t go wrong with freshly chopped herbs. Nutrition To Fit uses basil, but I’ve tried this recipe with oregano once and it worked perfectly.

What the chef says…

“I also have blended blistered tomatoes with an extra tablespoon of balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar, a tablespoon more olive oil, and a hefty pinch of dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create a thin pizza sauce.”

Caramelized Onions

4.9 ⭐️ (68 ratings) | 55 mins

Give your baked brie a massive flavor upgrade with these caramelized onions. 

These do take some time and patience – but the effort is worth it. You get a unique natural sweetness with these, and they complement the flavors of the brie really nicely. And to make these onions even more special, I like deglazing the pan with a splash of bourbon for extra flavor.

Set aside an afternoon and make a big batch of these caramelized onions – you can freeze these for up to three months, so you’ll always have them on hand to add to savory dishes.

What readers are saying…

“I have a good tip, fry lots of onions when caramelized put into jars labeled in the fridge…they keep forever and use as and when you need them.”

“Accurate and easy recipe.”

“Loved this recipe… I did tweak it a bit though by using white wine instead of water.”

Sauteed Mushrooms

4.9 ⭐️ (68 ratings) | 55 mins

When the winter season rolls in, go on and take advantage of the abundant supply of portobello mushrooms (well, at least where I am…)

These mushrooms are sauteed with herbs and then cooked down with sherry and tarragon, adding a subtle nutty twist to your shrooms.

Not a fan of sherry? No worries, you can also use white wine or simply skip it to make these mushrooms alcohol-free.

Serve these sauteed mushrooms over your baked brie for the best appetizer for a cozy winter dinner.

What readers are saying…

“Tried your recipe tonight for dinner, my wife and I both liked it a lot. Quick and easy to prepare, it was a nice change of pace.”

“This was such an easy and delicious side dish! Healthy and delicious; even my picky eaters enjoyed them!”

Main Dishes

Baked brie is a staple in appetizers, but did you know you can incorporate it with your favorite main dishes too?

Filet Mignon

4.5 ⭐️ (209 ratings) | 45 mins

Cooking up something special for date night? Impress your significant other by serving juicy, perfectly cooked filet mignon. 

It might be intimidating to cook this pricey cut of meat at home, but you only need to follow the right recipe for guidance. Wonky Wonderful’s version uses a two-step technique, which involves searing the steak first and then finishing it off in the oven. This ensures you have the perfect crust on the outside while keeping the insides nice and juicy.

Top your filet mignon with baked brie and watch it further melt to cover your steak with cheesy goodness.

What readers are saying…

“Followed this recipe to the letter and it was awesome, our steak was like butter, could have cut it with a spoon!!!!”

Potato Gnocchi

4.8 ⭐️ (614 ratings) | 1 hr 20 mins

Turn your baked brie into a satisfying pasta meal with the addition of gnocchi

Unlike typical pasta, they’re easier to make at home because you don’t have to roll the dough out into a thin sheet. You don’t even need a unique tool to give them their famous ridges – just use a fork!

Combine your homemade potato gnocchi and baked brie with cherry tomatoes to create a unique twist on the internet-famous baked feta pasta.

What readers are saying…

“This is a great recipe, came out perfect, thanks.”

“I made some today 🙂 This is like a version of the Ukrainian ‘palchuku’ like we used to call them.”

“These were amazing!”

Pan-seared Salmon

5.0 ⭐️ (13 ratings) | 15 mins

Pan-seared salmon is one of my go-to dishes to make on busy weeknights.

It’s quick, easy, and requires three basic pantry staples to make. Just remember to get the pan really hot to achieve that crisp crust while keeping the insides moist and flaky.

Like with the filet mignon, top this pan-seared salmon with a spoonful of your melted baked brie to elevate it to a restaurant-worthy dish.

What readers are saying…

“I love this easy way to cook salmon. It turns out perfect every time.”

“That salmon looks amazingly delicious. Thanks for the great recipe.”

“Hands down best way to make salmon. I will never make it any other way again!”
