Gooey brie and crunchy smokehouse almonds make this simple appetizer recipe shine. Raise your hand if you like football! Okay…now raise your hand if you like watching football especially when there are delicious snacky foods around to eat. Hands up? Yeah, me too.

I think most football lovers know that one of the best things on game day, close behind cheering for your favorite team, is filling your tummy with easy to eat, usually-cheesy snacks. The best kinds of snacks are the ones that are so easy, you can throw them together during a commercial break and they’ll be done by the following commercial break.

These Easy Brie Bites have only four ingredients, but make a delicious appetizer that you won't be able to get enough of! Gooey brie and crunchy smokehouse almonds make this simple appetizer recipe shine. When appetizers are gone within seconds (doesn’t that happen at your house too??), I don’t like to spend too much time fussing over making them. Thankfully, these Easy Brie Bites couldn’t be easier to make. Just four ingredients, a few minutes of prep time, and brief stint in the oven to melt the cheese, and these are ready to be devoured.

They start with mini phyllo shells. You can find these in the freezer section of your grocery store, near the pie crust! These make this appetizer so super simple, and provide the perfect flaky base for all the goodness your about to put inside the shells.

Gooey brie and crunchy smokehouse almonds make this simple appetizer recipe shine. Into the shells goes a chunk of good brie and a dollop of fig jam. You could use whatever kind of jam or preserves you want here, of course, but I love the taste of figs with the earthiness of the brie – it’s a great combo.

To add some necessary crunch and a bit of smokiness, I sprinkled chopped Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds over the brie bites. The smokey flavor and crunch rounded out these Easy Brie Bites and made them even more swoon-worthy! I could seriously snack on these almonds all day long, and you’ll be happy to have some left to snack on after whipping up these brie bites.

Gooey brie and crunchy smokehouse almonds make this simple appetizer recipe shine. These will be snatched up quick wherever you serve them, whether it’s pregaming, at halftime, or before a holiday dinner. Just be sure to save a few for yourself :) enjoy!

  2. OK, I have to admit: I pretty much hate watching any kind of sports. One time we got free tickets to a soccer game and I brought a book, haha! I do not mind the snacking though. At all ;) Especially not if the snacks come in such cute and delicious phyllo cups! I love figs and cheese, so these are definitely a must-make!
