Calories 160kcal


  • cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • ½ large baguette (or 1 small)
  • 7 ounces brie
  • 12 tablespoons cranberry sauce (¾ cup)


  • Peel and lightly crush the garlic, so that it's in one pice still.
  • Add the oil to a pan with the garlic and thyme, heat on a low heat for 5 minutes so that it warms and the aromas start to release. Take off of the heat and let sit.
  • Preheat the oven to 360F / 180c.
  • Slice the baguette thinly on a diagonal.
  • Place the sliced baguette on a baking sheet and brush both sides with the garlic and rosemary oil.
  • Place in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes until crispy, but not burnt, on both sides.
  • Top each slice with brie and a tablespoon of cranberry sauce.


  • Slice the baguette as thinly. Use a good bread knife for this.
  • Cut the baguette slices on the diagonal.
  • Don't go crazy on the toppings. These are finger food, so they should be easy to eat without getting in a mess!
