I’m so excited to be working with World Market to bring you this amazing and easy appetizer!

Raise your hands wildly in the air if you THRILLED that there is a Downton Abbey moving coming out September 20th. You can’t see me right now, but if you could, you would see that both hands are flying around in the air, and I’m bouncing up and down on my office chair. THAT excited. I get it.

Nathan and I watched all of Downton Abbey when it was first released. And by all of Downton Abbey, I mean that we were absolutely hooked, felt like we were one of the Crawleys, and watched every single episode . . . . except for the series finale. I’m not kidding. We couldn’t come to terms with parting with the show . . . so we never did. When I first saw that panning scene of Downton Abbey in a movie preview, I literally got goosebumps. And now it’s almost here! So obviously we are going to have to watch that series finale now.

As if we couldn’t get more excited the new movie is about the Crawleys and their staff getting ready for a visit from the King and Queen of England. And as you can see from the picture below the original cast is back!

The Perfect Tea Party

Just when I thought I couldn’t get more excited, I found out that World Market is caring a whole line of Downton Abbey gourmet food products to accompany the release of the movie. (Squeeeeeeel!)  They have literally thought of everything from the most wonderful earl gray tea with a hint of a vanilla to scones inspired by Mrs. Patmore’s kitchen.  See the whole collection here.

The tea is absolutely amazing and made even better with some Downton Abbey Afternoon Tea Honey.

A Simple Baked Brie Recipe

I decided that I would use the Downton Abbey Honey and Marmalade to create an amazing and simple appetizer that was perfect for any afternoon tea . . . or really any party that you are throwing.  The honey and marmalade are so delicious, they steal the show in this amazing and simple recipe.

How to Make a Baked Brie Recipe

I’m not sure if there is a more simple appetizer to make, but here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • I don’t take the rind off my brie. It is completely edible, and I think holds the brie together nicely while being served.
  • Bake this on a parchment lined baking sheet.  While the brie most likely won’t ooze all over during baking, this makes it a lot easier to move to a serving platter.
  • You want to bake your brie long enough that it gets nice and melty.  That is about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Let your brie sit. If you let it sit when you take it out of the oven, let it sit for 5 minutes.  If you don’t do this you run the risk of it being too runny when you slice into it.
