    Default How long will a chunk of leftover brie last? I just opened it ++

    tonight, and have a good 2/3s of it left. I used the original wrapper
    and box, but wonder what my lifespan is on the rest? I read some old
    posts and freezing brie was deemed worthless.

    Your fave use?

    I like it as a hot appetizer, but if you're not going to have guests
    in the next week or two - stock up on pears and eat some pear and brie
    every night until you've used it up. It could be worse! If you don't
    want to do that, Carol Shenk posted a recipe for Brie, Pepper, Onion
    Soda bread a while ago - here's the recipe

    2 c Flour, white all purpose
    1 ts Salt
    1/3 c Butter
    1 c Slivered brie (or small bits)
    1/2 c Finely chopped onion
    1 tb Black pepper
    2/3 c Milk
    1 tb Baking soda

    Start with all the dry ingredients and mix them well in a large bowl.
    Now add the butter (softened but not melted) and chop that into the
    mix as well as you reasonably can. Add the remaining ingredients and
    mix to a dough. Using a preheated oven (always preheat when making
    bread or fish!) bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes.

    Note: The onions are optional.

    Don't know about "fave use," but I routinely use brie a week or two
    after opening. I refrigerate it. After all, how much moldier can it
    get?

    Until it runs off the plate, in this house. You can make little parcels
    of it in filo and bake them, yummy.

    That's cheese torture, don't do it.

    Somewhere between a few weeks and a few months in our house. If you
    have a cheese or deli drawer in your 'frig, put it in there. It really
    does keep for a long time - obviously might not taste quite as fresh as
    when you bought it but it's still fine. I know I've had it 2-3 months
    old here.

    > Your fave use?


    As food. Just put it on a cracker or toast and eat it.

    Can make an interesting sandwich with a bit of ham or something else
    salty, doesn't work well with bland meats like chicken, I find.

    How long cheese lasts all depends on how you handle it. The softer
    the cheese, generally, the quicker it needs to be used up. Always use
    very clean implements and surfaces when handling/cutting/storing
    cheeses.

    Warmed brie and roast beef sandwiches on crusty bread.

    Left over brie? Was something wrong with it?

    I like it in omelets It's also good, as Janet mentioned, baked in filo
    (phyllo?) dough.

    Too bland for me in an omlette.

    Baked Brie - a real treat, that's for sure. I don't think we've made
    here, just bought it already in the pastry and cooked it and also had it
    at various parties and the like - yummy!

    Then again, what baked in philo dough does _not_ taste good?

    That would be my philo dough pepperoni pizza "dreaming up disaster"
    experiment.

    http://oi44.tinypic.com/zxl40i.jpg

    Never to be repeated.

    The dough baked up rock hard. I managed eating one slice.

    I salvaged some of the toppings onto two slices of lightly toasted
    multigrain bread. Marginally better but the thrill was gone!

    I'm sure you know you're supposed to paint each phyllo leaf with
    butter or oil...

    Ah, but I left out any mention of the other omelet ingredients. Spinach and
    crumbled bacon Trust me, it's absolutely delicious!

    Very easy to do yourself. It makes great appetizers for a party! I'm not
    sure how many of them would make it to a serving tray in my home

    Well DUH! It's nothing like pizza crust. It's light, flaky pastry. Why
    would you think you could make pizza with it? Spanikopita, yes. Pizza, no.

    I don't do anything with brie other than eat it plain if I'm not
    having a party, but I just ran across this recipe and thought of you.

    Here's another one that looks good to me

    Cranberry and Pecan Brie En Croute

    You're an experienced cook, so you'll be able to modify the recipe to
    suit your needs.

    Jill Jill,

    I like it with scrambled eggs too, but I put it as a layer on top and
    let it melt/soften from the warmth. I spread the egg onto a well
    buttered hard bland cracker -- matzoh is great -- and put a layer of
    brie over all. Oommph!

    I occasionally run across someone removing the rind. I've managed to
    educate a few of those, but I just collect the discarded rind and eat it
    if I can't. If you have good cream cheese -- that is, without added gums
    or stabilizers -- inoculate some with brie rind and let it ripen. When
    guests ask you where they can buy some, just smile and tell them that
    you made it youtself. [smirk]
