In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Serving baked brie as an appetizer?
You can’t go wrong by making crostinis to go with it.
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.
The crostini recipe is excellent not only for your baked brie but also for dips, cured meats, and other cheeses.
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).
Serve them alongside your baked brie, or simply pile a handful on top.
You can use any unsalted nuts you like, but steer clear from flavorful nuts like peanuts and hazelnuts – they might overpower your other flavors.
Take Vegetarian Venture’s lead and use pecans, walnuts, and almonds instead.
Aside from crostinis, crackers are one of the classic appetizers served with baked brie.
They’re the perfect vehicle to scoop your baked brie’s melted cheesy goodness.
They’re also loaded with seeds for added nutrients, color, and texture.
These seed crackers are lightly flavored, so they won’t overpower the baked brie.
These marinated olives are one of the easiest appetizers you can make to go with your baked brie.
Aside from preparing olives and the marinade, the rest of the process is just letting your olives sit in the marinade for at least two hours.
This ensures the olives get infused with the flavors of your herbs.
These garlic and herb marinated olives are salty and herby, making them an ideal partner for a rich and creamy cheese such as brie.
Prosciutto and melon skewers
These melon and prosciutto skewers are a fun summer party appetizer to go alongside your baked brie.
The sweetness from the melons and saltiness from the prosciutto makes for a delightful, satisfying bite.
Plus, the chopped greens (I prefer to use basil) add a refreshing note to the appetizer.
Don’t be surprised to see your guests hoarding these melon and prosciutto skewers.
These crispy veggie chips are the ultimate side dish for baked brie.
They’re a step above your typical store-bought chips – these veggie chips are baked, making them a healthy alternative.
For baked brie, I like making chips from root vegetables.
They’re crunchy and have a sturdier structure than chips made from leafy vegetables.
That way, I can dip these veggie chips in the gooey, melty baked brie.
Warning: There’s a high chance you’ll get hooked on these crispy veggie chips.
Rosemary roasted grapes
Skip the cranberry sauce for the holidays, and prepare these to serve with your baked brie instead.
Roasting grapes enhances their natural sweetness while seasoning them with rosemary imparts a piney, peppery flavor.
These rosemary roasted grapes are guaranteed to become a staple with your baked brie during the holidays.
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 just need to follow the right recipe for guidance.
Wonky Wonderful has an excellent detailed guide on cooking a filet mignon.
Top your filet mignon with baked brie and watch it further melt to cover your steak with cheesy goodness.
Balsamic roasted peppers
Add vibrant red, orange, and yellow hues to your baked brie with these balsamic roasted peppers.
You don’t even need to de-seed or slice these peppers – just throw them in one baking pan, season them, then roast them to your preference.
These balsamic roasted peppers have an irresistible sharp, sweet flavor combination that pairs nicely with your baked brie.
Sauteed portobello mushrooms
When the winter season rolls in, go on and take advantage of the abundant supply of portobello mushrooms (well, at least where I am…).
They’ll go superbly with your creamy, bubbling brie.
These mushrooms are sauteed and then cooked down in sherry and tarragon.
Cooking them in sherry adds a sweet and nutty flavor to your mushrooms.
Serve these sauteed mushrooms over your baked brie for the best appetizer for a cozy winter dinner.
Apple hand pies
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.
Just imagine smearing lightly savory melted brie over these sweet hand pies – sounds like a bite made in heaven, right?
Don’t be surprised if you immediately run out of these irresistible apple hand pies.
Blistered cherry tomatoes
You can always stick to the classics when all else fails – like pairing cherry tomatoes with your baked brie.
These blistered cherry tomatoes are insanely easy to prepare.
Not only that, but they add so much flavor and vibrancy to your brie.
These blistered cherry tomatoes have simple, amplified flavors that work together so nicely with brie.
Already making baked brie with toppings?
Make your brie the star with the help of pita bread.
It’s a lightly sweet flatbread that won’t overpower your cheesy star of the show.
They’re readily available in your local grocery store, but making at home them ensures you have the softest and chewiest pita.
Fortunately, they’re easy to make in your oven and even on your stovetop.
Natasha’s Kitchen’s recipe will guide you through making the best pita bread ever.
Spiced apple chutney
Spice up your plain brie with this apple chutney.
It has the perfect mix of sweet, spicy, and tangy flavors that will do wonders to elevate the cheese.
It’s a flavor combination that cuts through the richness of the brie, giving you a delicious, balanced bite.
And the best part?
This spiced apple chutney can be used in many other savory dishes – you’re bound to get so much use out of it.
Hot honey butter smashed potatoes
These smashed potatoes are the ideal side dish to go with your brie for the days you want to indulge and treat yourself.
They’re everything you want in potatoes – crispy exteriors, fluffy interiors, and extra flavorful from the inside out.
I don’t blame you if you manage to go through half a tray of these hot honey butter smashed potatoes – they really are that good.
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 baked brie really nicely.
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.
Turn your baked brie into a satisfying pasta meal with the addition of gnocchi.
