Maple Bacon Brie Pull-Apart Bread
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place 8 strips of bacon on a rack. Brush each slice with maple syrup, followed by a sprinkling of brown sugar. Bake the bacon for about 20 minutes, flipping each slice halfway through. When the bacon has cooked to a crisp, allow to cool a bit, then chop each slice.
- Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees, and crosshatch one large boule bread in both directions, with each slice about 1" apart. Make sure your cuts are deep, reaching to nearly the bottom of the bread.
- Whisk together a stick of melted butter with 2 tablespoons each of chopped thyme and parsley, along with a dash of freshly ground pepper and kosher salt. Brush the boule and inside the openings with the butter mixture.
- Stuff each crosshatched opening with thinly sliced brie and completely wrap the bread in foil. Place the loaf on a large pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes until the bread is toasty and the cheese is melted.
Serve Maple Bacon Pull-Apart Bread at your next game day get together or as an appetizer to compliment a lighter fare dinner party.
