This is a recipe I have made for years and years every Halloween. It is called baked brain. You start with a round of brie cheese, mushrooms, garlic, bacon and poblano peppers.
Dice everything into small dice. I added some pepperoni as well.
Pour some olive oil in a saute pan.
Saute everything and add some salt and pepper.
Let this mixture cool.
For this recipe I just buy puff pastry rather than make my own.
Cut the brie in half.
Scoop some of the cheese out to make an indentation. I found out that this cheese is perfect for giving the pup her pills!
Scoop some of the sauteed mixture on to the brie and spread it around.
Cover this with the other half of the brie.
Fold the puff pastry over the brie.
Press all the ends together.
Cut pieces from the second piece of brie and roll them into strings.
Curl them on top of the brie to look like a brain.
Crack egg yolks into individual bowls and add food coloring. Then spread these mixtures over the puff pastry brain.
I used black, red and green. Bake this in a preheated 475 degree oven until brown and bubbling on the edges.
Cut into it and it oozes all over the plate. When serving this at a party bring it straight from the oven to the guests. It makes a wicked presentation.
This grossed out classrooms of my kids schoolmates each Halloween!
Serve it with crackers. Baked brain might look gross but it is GOOD!!!!!
Look how much my view has changed in two days!
