I was in the market at just the right time to see 7 ounce boxes of Brie marked down to 60 cents because they expired the next day. I bought several. Regular price was a bit over $8 a pound, so I figured it was worth a few pennies to gamble on an unknown brand.

It turns out, it isn't very good cheese. It's not bad enough to throw out or to feed to the dogs, but my family isn't picking that one off the cheese platter.

It's mild, not soft enough, and the mold coating is odd, a bit thick and fuzzy. I can trim the coating off, but wonder what I might be able to do with the cheese.

Anyone have any good recipes that use Brie, or maybe another very mild cheese?

You can wrap Brie in crescent roll dough (the kind in the refrigerated section) and bake it - you get that wonderful flaky crescent roll filled with oozy Brie.

Flatten out some chicken breasts.
Sprinkle with basil, garlic, and tarragon
Put about an ounce of Brie on the chicken, then roll up the chicken and fasten with toothpicks if needed.
Throw into a really hot oiled pan for 2-3-4 minutes per side or until the pink is gone.
Sprinkle with black pepper if you want ... serve.

Make a quesadilla. Slice up the brie, add some sliced grapes put into a hot pan until the cheese is melted. Sweet pea guacamole goes great with it. Bag of frozen peas, cumin, juice and zest of a lime, sesame oil, salt & pepper all into a blender add a little olive oil if needed to get the right consistency.

And you can always freeze it. It will slightly alter the texture of the cheese - but if you're going to cook or bake it later, the texture doesn't matter. Just wrap it really really good.

I do basically the same thing using filo dough. Add some mango chutney, peach preserves, whole cranberry sauce, caramelized onions or anything else that takes your fancy for an even better feast!

To disguise the taste a bit more, you can melt the brie into potatoes, mac and cheese (with another cheese) or mashed potatoes to put on top of shepherd's pie.

Yea, delicious with cranberry. I used to have brie en croute with redcurrant sauce back in Europe, but I prefer it with cranberry nowadays.

A good piece of baguette heated up, spread with brie, add thick slices of smoked ham. I got addicted to brie and ham sandwiches.

I tried the baked Brie drizzled with honey and chopped walnuts. I think it would be pretty good if made with good Brie.

The rind of this is a bit odd, so I cut it off and the cheese itself was really mild. I think th Brie and honey needs the rind flavor and better cheese. I am going to try it again when I get some better cheese.

The rest of it, I melted into taco filling and refried beans just to get rid of it. It melts OK. I'll remember the brand and not buy any more of it.
