Baked Brie with Bacon Sausage Dippers

This ooey-gooey baked brie with bacon-wrapped roasted sausages makes an irresistible yet simple appetizer.


  • 1 package (1 1/4 pounds) Scott Pete Polish Sausage
  • 9 slices bacon, halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • Toothpicks, for securing bacon
  • 1 wheel (8 oz) brie, well chilled
  • 3 small sprigs rosemary
  • 4 teaspoons liquid honey


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut each sausage into thirds crosswise. Arrange halved bacon strips on cutting board and top each with a sausage piece. Sprinkle evenly with chopped rosemary and roll up tightly. Secure with toothpicks.
  3. Place brie in center of 12-inch round baking dish. Arrange bacon-wrapped sausages around brie. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and drizzle with honey.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bacon is golden brown and crispy around the edges and brie is just starting to ooze.

Tips: Substitute chopped rosemary and rosemary sprigs with chopped thyme and thyme sprigs if preferred.

Broil after baking for extra-crispy bacon.

For a loaded baked brie appetizer, sprinkle also with pecans and dried cranberries, or walnuts and fresh blueberries.
