I really wish I had a better picture of this dip, a picture that did it justice. Admittedly, it lacks color, texture, and pretty much everything else that makes a good culinary picture. Please don’t let that deter you because it is delicious. I have been making this for years and it never disappoints.
Brie on its own is fabulous but it is totally transformed when it is melted into this gooey dip. The addition of cream cheese and sour cream gives the dip a smooth texture. Cooked onions and garlic add a savory note that is contrasted with a little brown sugar and lemon juice. It smells so good while it is baking.
The Perfect Pairing for Baked Brie Dip is a spoonful of cranberry sauce. I discovered this when I made this dip for an appetizer night the day after Thanksgiving and served it with leftover cranberry sauce. The combination is, well, perfect. I know, I overuse that word. If it is not the day after Thanksgiving you can use the store-bought variety. I usually serve this dip with simple crackers, apple slices, and cranberry sauce.
