Start Your Thanksgiving Meal with Maple Pecan Baked Brie

FoodNetwork.com’s FN Dish blog and some of our other favorite food sites are celebrating a virtual Thanksgiving feast. We invite you to #PullUpAChair to our virtual communal table. We’re bringing a quick and easy appetizer that will keep your guests happy and satiated while you finish up preparing the meal.

This celebratory meal of bounty doesn’t have to be a stress-inducing race with the clock. If you’re anything like me on Thanksgiving, when guests arrive, the turkey still needs to rest, the potatoes still need to be mashed, and you’re in a scramble to get lumps out of the gravy. All the while, guests are waiting around hungrily and you’re losing your wits in the kitchen.


Maple Pecan Baked Brie
There is a simple solution to alleviate the stress of the most anticipated meal of the year: start with appetizers. Giving guests pre-dinner bites will help set the scene for an elegant meal while arousing palates and stimulating appetites. They help guests mingle while waiting for the turkey and, most importantly, they will allow you some wiggle room in starting your Thanksgiving feast.

Pick one or two light nibbles that can be thrown together in a cinch. You can even just arrange a hodgepodge of different cheeses and crackers, or an assortment of cured meats, olives and breads. And if paired with an appetite-stimulating aperitif, guests will only get happier as they wait.

This Thanksgiving, we’re choosing to start off the meal with a stylish, simple-to-prepare Maple Pecan Baked Brie. The pecan praline sauce that crowns the salty, warm baked brie is reminiscent of a pecan pie but with just a touch of sweetness from maple syrup. A generous dose of fragrant, coarsely ground black pepper brings an intricate depth to this savory-sweet appetizer.

Happy Thanksgiving!
