These Thanksgiving appetizers are ideal for grazing before the main meal! Choose from baked brie, cranberry salsa, and more.


  • 1 brie cheese wheel
  • Honey or cranberry, cherry or apricot jam or preserves
  • Chopped pistachios, walnuts or pecans
  • Flaky sea salt (optional)
  • For the platter: crackerscrostini, baguette slices, sliced apples or pears, grapes, nuts, jam, etc.


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the brie in a baking dish or on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until soft and warm: it’s done when you touch the center with your finger and it feels very liquid inside.
  2. Top with honey or jam, crushed pistachios, and a bit of flaky sea salt. Surround with crackers or crostini, grapes, apple, pear, etc.
