Brie with Chutney and Bacon

Sweet mango chutney and crispy bacon crumbles showcase buttery-soft Brie cheese in this elegant orchestra of textures. Serve with gingersnaps for a lovely spread that is perfect for impromptu outdoor entertaining.

1 (13.2-ounce) round Brie
2/3 cup mango chutney
4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
Gingersnaps or crackers

1. Remove rind from top of Brie, leaving a ¼-inch border. Place Brie on a microwave-safe plate. Top with chutney; microwave on high 1 minute or until cheese softens. (Do not melt cheese.)

2. Sprinkle bacon over chutney. Serve with gingersnaps or crackers. Makes 10 appetizer servings.

Hosting Help: Brie is a tasty choice for any party platter. When selecting perfectly ripe cheese for the best flavor, pick one that is plump and resilient to touch. The rind might show soft brown edges.
