Ooey, gooey Bacon Pecan Baked Brie is the best bite for any occasion! Baking spices, salty bacon, nuts, and tangy brie are a match made in flavor heaven!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside.
In a medium skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy, about 8 minutes. Pour off the excess bacon fat. (A little in the pan is okay, but you want it almost gone.)
To the bacon in the skillet, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix to combine. Add the pecans and mix to combine. The topping will become thick and clump together a bit.
Unwrap the brie. Use a sharp knife to remove the white rind from the top of the cheese. Place the cheese on the prepared baking sheet.
Pour the bacon topping over the cut side of the cheese. Pour the remaining tablespoons of honey over the bacon mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the brie is gooey.
Carefully transfer the brie to a serving plate, being careful not to puncture the rind. Serve immediately with crostini and/or sliced green apples.
The brie can be baked and served in a small, oven-safe dish with raised sides, as opposed to the baking sheet.
If you don't care for baking spices, you can substitute the cinnamon & nutmeg for 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper for a sweet and spicy variation.
