3 ingredient Brie and Bacon Palmiers made in minutes with crispy puff pastry, bacon, and melted brie. Bake in 15 minutes, give as a wonderful food gift!
I know, I know bacon and brie…it is a thing around here…
Lidy of French Garden House and I created this series of Autumn Entertaining recipes, here is the appetizer table we collaborated on together! I think it is so pretty, and so so easy…
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed (1 box has 2 sheets)
- 1/2 block of soft brie 3 oz, room temp (you can eat the rind, or remove as you wish)
- 1/2 cup crumbled crispy bacon try fully cooked bacon and crisp in microwave
Preheat oven to 400.
Line a large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Make crispy bacon. Crumble. Set aside.
Pull puff pastry from freezer, let defrost on counter 20 minutes.
Gently roll out puff pastry to a 10 x 10-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
Dot with small pieces of brie (about 1/2 wedge brie) and sprinkle with 1/2 cup crispy bacon.
Roll in 1” from each side, keep folding in 1” from each, the edges meet in the middle. Turn on its side.
Very important: cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This helps it easily slice palmiers.
Use a small serrated knife, cut the entire piece pastry into 1/2. (TIP: Start in the middle, slice and keep cutting each piece in 1/2 in middle until you have 16 total slices).
Place each slice on the prepared parchment baking sheet. Push into shape if it loses its shape.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Lighter color baking sheets may require a few more minute than a darker baking sheet.
Remove from oven and serve warm.
Note: You can make these up through step 10, and keep in fridge overnight covered in plastic wrap. Then bake off during or right before your party. They will be okay for a couple hours, but are amazing right from the oven!
And these make incredible food gifts, simply place a few in a gorgeous little bowl, tie with a ribbon and tag….how thoughtful to bring to a hostess!
Full disclosure, these little palmiers are almost impossible to eat just one. Hey, I am just here saying. Believe me I tried, and so have several other friends…enjoy, they are delish!
