  • 8 slices Artisanal bread Chose from The Rustik Oven breads
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove whole
  • 1 pinch salt Pink Himalayan
  • 10 ounces Brie cheese trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce homemade or store bought
  • 3 tablespoons thyme leaves fresh
  • 2 Tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place The Rustik Oven bread slices on a baking sheet in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil and pinch of salt. Toast the bread for 10-15 minutes until slightly golden.
  3. Remove the baking sheet and wait for a couple of minutes until the bread is cool enough to hold.
  4. Take the clove of garlic and rub against the crunchy bread slice on one side. repeat with the remaining slices.
  5. Start layering the brie cheese over the bread slices evenly and top with the cranberry sauce in different spots, avoid spreading the cranberry sauce.
  6. Sprinkle the fresh thyme leaves over the brie and cranberry sauce and place the bread back in the oven for an extra 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  7. Remove the bread from the oven and serve right away drizzled with honey.
  8. Extras: You can sprinkle some cracked fresh black pepper, chili flakes and some Parmesan cheese if you like. I prefer the toast recipe as is, but feel free to customize it to your taste :) Enjoy!!

Recipe Notes

Choose quality bread. I probably can’t stress enough on that! Toast the bread before adding any toppings, that way you have a perfect crust and also, that way your crust lasts longer. Rub a clove of garlic on the hot bread for a faint garlic flavor that doesn’t over power the brie and cranberry taste. Drizzle the honey only when you’re ready to serve the baked brie toast. To make this toast recipe in advance, prepare the recipe to the point where you need to drizzle honey. At that point, you can keep the toast warm in your oven until ready to serve. Drizzle honey right before serving. Likewise, you can prepare the recipe until the point where you need to drizzle the honey, and freeze the baked brie toasts in a single layer for up to 1 month. Warm the toast for 30 minutes before serving and drizzle the honey.
