Recipe: Baguette Stuffed with Brie and Cherries

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 1 hr

Can be served for: 4 to 6 persons


  • 2 pound fresh Bing cherries, pitted and halved

  • 2/3 cup good-quality Port wine

  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 2 crusty French baguette

  • 3 ounces Brie, sliced into 2/3-inch slices

  • 2 sprig fresh thyme


  1. For the compote: In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, add the cherries, wine, salt, pepper and thyme and stir. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat slightly to medium. Continue to cook at a rapid simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool, then remove the thyme sprigs.

  2. For the baguette: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. Using a paring knife, cut a deep "v" on the top of the baguette. Pull out some of the soft bread to create a deep crevice. Place the Brie slices into the crevice, overlapping each slice. Transfer to a baking sheet.

  4. Bake until the cheese is melted and the bread is slightly toasted, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Spoon the cherry compote over the melted Brie. Slice into thick slices, garnish with the remaining thyme sprig and serve.
