Brie Stuffed with Garlic & Herbs
It’s customary to “stuff” a turkey, a potato, or a pasta shell. But Brie? Oh, but yes. Brie stuffs excellently, and stuffed Brie is good stuff with which to get stuffed. Especially if that stuffed Brie is Trader Joe’s Stuffed Brie with Garlic & Herbs.
We hadn’t encountered stuffed Brie until we decided to stuff it, and we’re glad we did. It's truly a marvel. Wheels of double cream Brie from Wisconsin are sliced horizontally; the top of the wheel is removed and the bottom half is topped with a blend of cream and herbs including garlic, parsley, and onion powder. The “stuffing” is spread to our satisfaction, and the top of the Brie wheel is replaced. When wedges are cut from the wheel, the garlic & herb spread sandwiched between the top and bottom of the cheese creates a layered effect that’s stunning to behold and dizzyingly delightful to eat. If you want, you can also call it a big ol' Brie sandwich.
Equally delightful is our price of $8.99 a pound (about $4-5 per piece). This is a unique-to-Trader Joe’s Brie, and a unique-to-Trader Joe’s value you’ll want to “stuff” into your shopping cart throughout the holiday season. You’ll find it in our cheese case.
