This is an ideal appetizer for a wine tasting party. Served with a nice crisp glass of Chardonnay or a Chablis, Brie cheese adds elegance and style to any gathering and is a wonderful and welcomed addition to any table. Try this one with a cranberry sauce on the side as a delightful spread along with slices of apples and pistachio nuts to delight the taste buds.
1/2 Pound Brie Cheese
1 Cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
shelled pistachio nuts and apple slices as garnish
Generously grease a muffin pan and preheat oven to 450 degrees. With a wire whisk, beat eggs in a medium bowl. Add in milk, flour, sugar and salt until smooth, without over mixing. Fill cups 2/3 full and bake at 450 for 5 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes, until they look crusty and golden brown. Pull from the oven and slice the top of each muffin and insert a small slice of brie cheese into the top. Bake for another 5 minutes and remove from pan and place on a nice serving plate with cranberry sauce in the middle and sprinkle pistachio nuts and slices of apple around the plate to add color and add a nutty flavor to the popovers.
