- 1 sourdough round or French/Italian boule
- 12 ounce double cream brie round with top rind removed or wedge with rind removed and cut into cubes
- 2 ounce cubed prosciutto; you could also use pancetta or diced bacon (if you use bacon I would brown it first)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- hot honey; for drizzle (recipe below)
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 450 degree F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Cut off the top of the sourdough round to make a lid and hollow out a circle roughly the size of your brie making sure not to cut all the way to the bottom. Once you have removed the middle, slice the sides of your bread to make pullaparts for dipping. Make sure not to slice completely through the bottom.

- Tear the bread your removed into small chunks and reserve the lid or also tear it into small pieces. Place on your baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
- Add your brie, prosciutto, garlic, thyme, and a good sprinkling of fresh cracker pepper to the hollowed out circle. Give the bread bowl and brie a gently drizzle of olive oil and bake for 15 minutes until the cheese is completely melted and the bread has toasted.
- Remove from the oven. Drizzle with hot honey and an extra sprinkling of thyme leaves before serving.
- hot honey: combine ¼ cup clover honey and 1 teaspoon chili paste (or the amount to your taste) in a small sauce pan over low heat until warm. Remove from the heat and set aside until ready to serve.
