Yes, that is one entire kilo of Brie. Only at Trader Joe's - the home of Pound Plus chocolate and supersized cheese. See just how big it is, compared to our keys, below...
This wheel of Brie, as outsized as it is, did give us a good idea for a holiday appetizer. It is, after all, only $12.99.
So you take that $12.99 wheel of Brie, and top it with some of that leftover cranberry sauce that I am sure most of you have lurking in the refrigerator. Mix the sauce with a few pecans, some brown sugar, and some rum. Pile it on top of the Brie (take the top rind off first) and put it in the oven until bubbly. Serve with crackers.
How many people do you think this ultra-easy appetizer would serve? We think at least 30 -- maybe more.
