Recipe: Strawberry and brie bites

From EatingWell

Strawberries, Brie cheese, fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar come together in this delicious one-bite appetizer recipe.


Makes 12 servings

12 small fresh strawberries, hulled

12 fresh basil leaves

3 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 12 small pieces (about 1/2-by-1-inch)

2 teaspoons balsamic glaze


Active time 15 minutes

Total time 15 minutes

  1. Thread a strawberry, basil leaf and piece of cheese onto each of 12 toothpicks.
  2. Drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving.

To make ahead

Hold (without glaze) at room temperature for up to 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 2 hours.


Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that’s cooked until it’s very thick. Make it yourself by boiling 1 cup balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until syrupy and reduced to about 1/4 cup, 10 to 14 minutes.
