Happy Fourth of July! And what better way to enjoy the day than with red white and blue cedar planked Brie. Wonderful creamy soft cheese. A hint of cedar. Sweet honey. Roasted and fresh berries. The perfect appetizer, right off the grill!
You can get as little or as much cedar flavor and aroma as you like. Charring the plank before adding the cheese will release some of those cedar oils. Less charring, less cedar. It’s that easy!
We both love the combination of cooked and fresh berries on this red white and blue cedar planked Brie. You get a wonderful textural difference, along with contrasting flavors. They’re really great!
Also try my cedar planked Twinkies.
Red White and Blue Cedar Planked Brie
- Cedar grilling plank soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
- 1 wheel Brie at room temperature
- honey to taste
- blueberries fresh, rinsed, patted dry
- raspberries fresh, rinsed, patted dry
- Crackers for serving
- Fire up your grill for high heat cooking around 400 F. I like to start my plank over direct heat then move it to indirect heat once the plank has a good char on it. If you're using a gas grill you can start over high heat then turn down the gas to finish softening the cheese.
- Unwrap cheese and place in the center of the plank.
- Drizzle the cheese with honey and sprinkle with berries. Use as many or as few as you want.
- Grill for 20-25 minutes or until the Brie is nice and soft. Remove.
- Sprinkle with more fresh berries and serve with crackers.
