These are the ingredients you need for this mummy baked brie recipe. Full quantities and instruction information can be found in the recipe card below.
Brie Cheese Wheel – this recipe calls for a wheel 8 ounces in size but you can adjust as desired based on how much you want to serve. Do NOT use a light or low fat brie, it will not melt well. I learned this the hard way!
Puff Pastry Sheet – 1 full sheet of puff pastry, thawed. You will likely not use all of the sheet but you can cut up the leftover into chip-like pieces and bake for them to be served alongside the brie. Crescent dough can also work.
Cherry Jam – you could also use any jam you prefer. I like to use red jam to give a “blood” effect. Raspberry jam or strawberry jam would also be great!
Beaten Egg – any size, for egg wash
Olive – Just 1 to use for the eyes! I like to use a black olives but any color will work. Mini pepperonis would also be a great choice for eyes!
Dipping Items of Choice – I love to serve this up with the leftover puff pastry cut and cooked into mini chips, some crackers, apple slices, or vegetables.
Lightly roll out your puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to press the different segments together.
Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut the puff pastry into long thin strips.
Cut the top part of the brie wheel off and spread the jam across the cut side. Place the top of the brie back on.
Place brie wheel in a baking dish or on a lined baking sheet.
The wheel of brie is going to leak no matter what so I find it is best if you can put it in a dish not much larger than the wheel, just to keep it all in the same place at least. Otherwise use a parchment-lined baking sheet for an easier clean up.
Add the puff pastry strips to the brie at various angles to represent the mummy bandages. Fold pastry ends under the brie wheel so the strips of dough stay in place.
Cut the olive in half across the middle so that you have two slices of black olives that are circles. Place the olive slices on the brie where it will look like the mummy’s eyes.
Add the egg wash across the puff pastry pieces with a pastry brush to help it turn golden in the oven.
Bake until the brie is melted and the strips of puff pastry on top of the brie are golden brown, approximately 15-20 minutes.
Serve the wrapped brie with your favorite dunkers such as crackers, apples, and vegetables.
No, you want to keep the rind on. This will hold the cheese in place as much as possible.
This can happen when the brie is overbaked and starts to harden.
You want to use a regular brie and not a light or low fat brie. The lite version does not melt well.
No, this does not matter.
