Fathead Baked Brie with Blackberry Mustard

Fathead Baked Brie with Blackberry Mustard

Here is a recipe for baked brie using a fathead crust.  I may have legit eaten half tonight, thank god I had over 1000 calories left for today.  I’m in too much of a food coma to say much else about this delicious creation, so, here it is:

Ingredients

  • 1 wheel of brie cheese
  • 170g of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 85g of almond flour
  • 2 tbsp of cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 10 blackberries
  • 2 tbsp of Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp erythritol, or sweetener to taste

For the fathead dough, mix the almond flour and the mozzarella cheese and the cream cheese, and microwave in a safe bowl for 60 seconds. Mix thoroughly and microwave again for 30 more seconds, and mix again.

Add the egg to the mixture and mix thoroughly until the dough forms a ball, take out, and knead for a minute or two.

Between parchment paper, roll out to 1/4 in sheet and set aside.

Chop the berries finely and mix together with the mustard and sweetener, and place in the center of the fathead sheet.

Place brie wheel on top of the mustard and fold fathead dough around the brie, making sure to form an even layer around the cheese.

Flip over so the smooth end is facing up, place on a baking sheet, and bake at 350F until the fathead is browned. I used my air fryer, it took 15 mins at 350, for a convention oven, you may have to keep an eye on it.

Simple Bleu Cheese Dip

I can’t take any credit for this recipe, as my mother-in-law actually introduced me to this recipe.  It is ridiculously easy, but it’s really just a nice way to change up your basic dip.  You can use this on wings, with veggies, or even as a salad dressing.  It takes about 5 minutes to make, if you use chopped blue cheese crumbles, it takes even less time.

Ingredients:

  • 1-32 ounce tub of Sour cream (make sure its not light)
  • 8 ounces of Bleu cheese
  • 1 package of Ranch dip mix
  • 1 package of onion dip mix
  • Juice of half of a small lemon or a quarter of a larger (taste it, if you like more lemon add more)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.  Personally I like lots coarse black pepper, but you can season to your taste buds.

Mix everything together, refrigerate for 15 minutes and enjoy!

One thing I wanted to mention, and My mother-in-law said this.  For best results, if you have Daisy brand Sour cream, use Daisy. Knudsen is good as well, but for whatever reason, the store brand sour cream seems to get runny, while Daisy in particular, will keep its consistency better.

I love to add a Tbsp of this to salads, along with olive oil and more lemon to make a simple salad dressing, or  you can put it on Buffalo wings. I promise, you won’t be able to eat them with just blue cheese or just ranch anymore! If you’re a little picky about blue cheese I would recommend chopping it up into finer pieces.
