Congratulations, it is the second week of the M5 Fitness challenge. I love brie and I believe in treating myself so join me and dip into the luscious melted cheese with trans fat–free 100 percent whole-grain or wheat crackers.
1 (8-ounce) round Brie cheese
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped walnuts, toasted
40 low-sodium 100 percent whole-wheat crackers (such as Triscuit)
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Using a serrated knife, remove topmost rind from cheese; discard rind. Place cheese, cut side up, in a small ovenproof baking dish; sprinkle with cranberries and thyme. Top evenly with nuts. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until cheese is soft and warm. Serve immediately with crackers.
