You know those appetizers when you put them on the table, and everyone goes, “Woww.” But in reality it took only a couple of minutes to make with literally no clean up? This Baked Brie with Wine-Soaked Blueberries is one of those.

My first appetizer are Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs, smothered with marinara sauce and grated Parmesan. So good that I made an extra batch to enjoy during the week.
Holiday party planning can be stressful so I’m all about quick and easy appetizers that can also be show stoppers. Baked brie is one of my go-tos because it’s super easy to make, and you can easily switch it up for any season. While the brie bakes up in the oven (only takes 10 minutes!), create the wine soaked blueberries by adding blueberries, red wine, and sugar to a small saucepan. I like to also treat myself to a glass of wine while I’m cooking in the kitchen, it is afterward the holidays!
The H‑E‑B Soft Ripened Brie Cheese Wheel is perfect for baked brie recipes! Just remove from packaging and place on a parchment paper, and bake until bubbly.
