Baked Garlic, Brie with Bacon on Whole Wheat Toast Recipe

This is our family's traditional Sunday morning breakfast. Ironically, I actually got this recipe from a Jewish friend of mine before she started observing some of the food laws. There is something about this combination of baked brie and garlic spread on homemade whole wheat toast, topped with bacon that tantalizes our taste buds. These foods go so well with each other. You could even leave off the bacon and this recipe would still be good. Oh and did I mention it is super simple to make? We even get the kids involved with this recipe.

Ingredients List (for a family of 4):
2 small wheels of brie cheese or 1 larger wheel
1 1/2 heads of garlic
1/2 loaf of homemade 100% whole wheat bread
1/2 lb of bacon

Here is the order in which I cook everything so that it is all done at the same time so we can eat it while it is still warm.

1. I soak my garlic baker lid in some water while I preheat the oven to 350. During this time, I also cut the tops of the garlic heads off and put a little pat of butter on top of each (if you really want to get fancy you can sprinkle a little bit of Italian seasoning on top of the butter).
2. After oven is preheated, put lid on garlic baker and put in oven. Set timer for 15 minutes. In the meantime, put brie wheels or wedges in a pan that has sides (it can get greasy as you can see by the picture above).
3. After timer goes off, add brie to oven (place next to garlic baker) and set timer for 15 more minutes.
4. While brie and garlic are cooking, start cooking the bacon and getting the bread sliced and toasted.
5. When timer goes off again, take everything out of oven and start building your breakfast. You want to spread the brie while it is hot or it doesn't go on very well. On a slice of toast, spread with baked brie, top with baked garlic cloves and bacon. Do this for all slices of toast. Michael and I eat 2 a piece, while the kids eat one each.

This is a very hearty breakfast that will get you and your kids through church and to your next meal.

We don't eat bacon (I do, but WE don't) so this recipe is out for us, but it looks simply wonderful and very filling. Your bread looks excellent too!

You can totally do this recipe without bacon and it still tastes wonderful. Thanks for the compliment on the bread. I love my bread recipe.

I know, I'm getting hungry looking at these pictures, too. It is truly a delicious recipe.
