Brie and Brown Sugar TartineIngredients

  • 4 1-inch-thick slices rustic white round bread, like boule

  • Unsalted butter for the bread, room temperature

  • 1/2 pound brie, sliced

  • 4 to 6 teaspoons light brown sugar, or to taste


  1. Preheat your broiler.

  2. Spread the slices of bread lightly with butter on both sides. Place the bread on a baking sheet, and slide under the boiler, just one or two minutes per side, or until the bread is lightly toasted and slightly crunchy on both sides.

  3. Remove the bread from the oven, leaving them on the baking sheet. Divide the brie slices over the four slices of bread, and then top with the sugar.

  4. Use a crème brûlée torch to melt the brie and caramelize the sugar. Serve immediately, with some walnuts and grapes on the side.
