Grilled apples with brie

The apple could even top circles of toasted bread

Why should meat get all the grill time? Fruit tastes fabulous with a little smokiness and grilling dessert is a great way to keep the oven off during the dog days of summer. Serve these to start or end a wonderful meal.

Grilled apples with brie

  • 2 medium apples
  • about 1/2 small wheel of brie
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme or tarragon
  • A good-sized sheet of foil, around 10 inches long

Core apples and slice into round disks. (You’ll have two little slices leftover by the core just eat them.) Whisk honey in small bowls. Using pastry or silicone brush, coat both sides of apples with honey mixture. Place on foil and top each with a slice of brie, leaving a little room for meltage. Place foil on a hot grill and cook until cheese is melted and apples are tender. About seven to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with fresh spice.

    What a great idea! Maybe some other cheeses would work equally as well.

  3. Photo is gorgeous and these look like they would be beyond tasty.

  4. while i’m not a huge fan of apples, you had me at the brie. πŸ˜‰

    You had me at the apples, not a huge fan of brie. πŸ™‚ Although I haven’t tried it in 13 years, so maybe I should give it another shot. Grilling apples sounds wonderful though!

  6. P. Graham says:

    This looks AWESOME!!! Thanks for the idea πŸ˜€

  7. Amanda says:

    Oh my!! These look delish! I could totally make these while I’m out camping too! Love it!

  8. rutheh says:

    When I used to entertain or go to cocktail parties, there would always be a baked brie in a pastry crust or topped with raspberries. It was standard fare. Then it seemed to disappear. I like your vision of the brie on the grilled apples.

  9. tokyobling says:

    Love apples, love Brie, I would love to try this is my miniature kitchen here in Tokyo actually had the surface area to pull this together!

  10. I will take this over meat any day! looks yummy!

  11. Yum! I love apples and brie. I know that a grilled version would be just tasty.

  12. Man, I’ve give anything for a ‘dog day of summer’ right about now, I’m sure I haven’t seen the sun for a week. Just popped in to say awesome idea, sounds & looks delicious too.

  13. Can you suggest a cheese other than brie for this dish? I’m allergic.

  14. gisellecagli says:

    The bitterness of brie with the sweet and acid taste of apples!!!!!! Great combination. I am also loving the fact that you added fresh herbs: it really gives a kick to this dish! Bravo!!!

  15. rsmacaalay says:

    Apples and cheese, this is a great idea. I guess the only thing left would be a sauvignon blanc

  16. Charles says:

    Lovely! Did you ever have brie fried in breadcrumbs with redcurrant jelly? Now that’s a delicious starter… so unhealthy though πŸ˜€

  17. Ooh la la! Very nice indeed. I do grilled pears with blue cheese which is also good – have never tried this combination so will be giving it a go next time I go “down the mountain” and I can get hold of some brie.

  18. fatisrecipes says:

    Wow, this is the first time I’ve seen this dish. I like the mixture of spice and honey.. Sounds like a party in my mouth πŸ˜‰

  19. Never thought of this combo, but it looks terrific. Love brie and the idea of not baking a dessert in the summer!

  20. banbamama says:

    oh this is delicious. What a great combination.

  21. Pete would braai (grill / barbecue) 7 days a week given half the chance so it is going to be great to share this new idea with him. I love that you are using fresh herbs too.

  23. Colline says:

    Perfect for post-dinner before dessert!

  25. Ginger says:

    Apples and brie and honey, oh my! As another commenter said “oh la la” sounds absolutely delicious!

  26. ChgoJohn says:

    Not only have you given us a great recipe but I’ve learned a new word, “meltage.” I can’t wait to use both.

  27. Try some of those amazing local peaches on the grill – my, oh my!

  28. Kelly says:

    I literally gasped when I saw this photo…. gorgeous! (I think it’s the contrasting red plate against the melting brie – your artistry at work again! πŸ™‚ I didn’t know you could grill apples – very cool!

  51. Maureen says:

    Brie is out of fashion? Not at my house πŸ™‚

    I popped some in some phyllo dough the other day with caramelized onions and cashews and it was delightful !

    I did that because I hadn’t seen your apples and brie – heaps easier and probably just as tasty!

  52. Andreea says:

    I like the sound of this – also thanks for passing by my blog πŸ™‚

  57. niasunset says:

    WOW! This sounds to be so delicous, I want to try but instead of brie what can I find here, I am not sure, should be cream cheese, isn’t, ? Thank you Rufus, with my love, nia
