Making Whipped Butter with Garlic and Brie Cheese
First things first, to make this recipe, you will need an 8oz wheel of brie at room temperature. Place the wheel of brie on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut off the top rind of the brie. Set the rind aside as we will use it later in the recipe. Then, cut the brie into small pieces and place them in a food processor.
Next, add 8 oz of butter, 1/4 cup heavy cream, 3-4 minced cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp oregano, 1 tbsp thyme, and 1 tsp salt to the food processor. If you prefer a spicier butter, you can also add 1/2 tsp black pepper or a drizzle of honey if you prefer something sweeter. Blend all the ingredients on high speed until they are combined and the mixture has a creamy consistency.
Now, it’s time to add the reserved brie rind to the mixture as it adds more flavor and depth to the butter. Blend the mixture again, but on low speed this time, until the rind is completely incorporated.
Once the mixture is ready, transfer it from the food processor onto a piece of plastic wrap. Gather the sides of the plastic wrap, and twist them together to form a compact, cylindrical shape. Make sure to squeeze out as much air as possible, and then place the wrapped butter in an airtight container. Place the container in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill and let the flavors develop.
Serving Brie Butter
When ready to serve, remove the wrapped butter from the refrigerator and let it sit for a few minutes to soften. To create the perfect cheese spread, use an electric mixer to whip the butter until it becomes light and fluffy. Transfer the butter to a serving bowl, and garnish with your favorite toppings like caramelized onions, fresh herbs, or even apple butter.
To take the recipe to the next level, you can also bake the brie butter on top of a wheel of brie in a baking dish. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the brie wheel on the parchment paper, and then add a generous amount of the brie butter on top of the brie wheel. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
The best part of this recipe is that it is so versatile! You can use it as a dip, spread it on your favorite toast and crackers, or serve it on a cheese board with other delicious creations. You can even use it to make a delicious brie dip for your next party. To make the dip, mix 4 oz of double cream brie with a few tablespoons of the whipped butter and a squeeze of lemon juice. Bake in a small dish for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees, and serve with your favorite crackers or bread.
In conclusion, this Brie and Garlic Whipped Butter recipe is a must-try for all cheese lovers looking for new recipes to add to their wheelhouses!
