Do you take the rind off Brie before baking?

Keep the rind on the Brie while baking. It keeps the shape of the cheese and allows it to hold the shape so it doesn’t all melt out. The rind is edible so you can enjoy it with the melted cheese.

After baking you can remove the top layer minutes before serving. Then place the melted cheese in a crusty bread.

Do you Cut Brie to Bake?

If you plan on making a dippable Brie, then you can cut the top of the rind off. Make sure to leave the sides and bottom rind intact. This helps to keep the cheese together while it bakes.

Tips for Bake Brie Cheese:

  • Choosing the right Brie – You can get a budget friendly Brie or an expensive Brie. Whichever you choose, it will still be delicious with your favorite topping.
  • Serve Immediately – Brie is based served as soon as it comes out of the oven. For about 15 minutes you can dip in the melted cheese, but after that you will need to spread with a knife.
