Baked Brie Dip w/sun dried tomatoes, thyme

baked brie dip recipe

Warm. Cheesy. Flavorful. Dip. On. Bread. Need we say more?

This brie dip recipe post just needs to be short and simple. Call it cheating, we don’t care. It’s almost like a mathematical equation that doesn’t need further explanation:

melted brie + tangy, sun dried tomatoes + aromatic garlic + fragrant thyme + heat + bread = Fabulous!

It’s holiday party season for us and that means becoming the popular people at work (popularity is seasonal) because we bring the really good stuff: Cheesy dips.  Tis the season to indulge in all the cheese dip and bread that you can eat because SANTA says it’s OK. We’re good kids and listen to Santa.

So there it is kids, the math says it all. Words don’t need to describe how good and fast this baked brie dip is.

We’re ending this post here so that we can spend more time getting back to making this dip recipe and sharing with everyone at your table.

Baked Brie Recipe

Yield: 3-4

Cook Time: 30 min.


  • about 10 oz. Brie
  • 8 oz. jar of sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained & chopped
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of dried thyme or 3/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • Baguette or crackers


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Remove rind from Brie, then cut brie into cubes.

3. In medium bowl, combine sun dried tomatoes, garlic, thyme, fresh cracked black pepper

4. In small-medium baking dish, layer the base with about 1/3 of the sun dried tomato mixture, then top with 1/2 of the chopped brie. Repeat the layering until the top layer is the sun dried tomato mixture.

6. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes, or until the brie completely melts and becomes bubbly. You may need to stir the dip one time, about 15 minutes into the baking to combine the layers.

7. Serve warm, with bread or crackers

    Would it be possible to do this in a crockpot?

    1. Todd & Diane

      We haven’t tried yet, but maybe in a small crockpot. If you try it please let us know how it works.

      1. Annie

        It was a huge pain to separate the brie from the casing but other than that, I added some cream cheese and it turned out really good!

  2. rachael

    try taking the small frozen phyllo cups found in the freezer section and place a small piece of brie in the bottom of each,.top with tomato mixture and bake. Great for parties !

  3. Michelle E

    Made this on a whim because I had all the ingredients in the fridge and I love them all. It couldn’t have been easier. This will make many repeat appearances.

  4. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Just stumbled on this 3+ year old post of yours on Pinterest. Gotta love it!

    And I love baked brie. Around the holidays, TJs sold this hot pepper jelly that was fabulous and with brie, I loved it. Need to make your dip!

  5. D Vierra

    I never quite know what to do with brie except for the usual brie en croute or just plain brie as part of a cheese tray, so this recipe is a lifesaver – Thank You!

  6. Kevin

    This sounds so amazingly good!

  7. Mollie

    yeah, i’m so totally serving this on NYE….

  8. Susan C

    “good and fast” – my two favorite words when it comes to food. And, as always, the photos are brilliant.

    I think this recipe is going to become part of my appetizer repertoire.

  9. Sandie

    There are no words, just the feeling of my mouth beginning to water. Love brie, love sun-dried tomatoes, love garlic & thyme, and definitely LOVE bread. But the thing I love most, is how easy this is to create. Absolutely the way a good appetizer should be, tasty & easy (save the hard work to wow them at dinner)!

  10. Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer

    Wow this is incredible and will be a perfect addition this year to our family Christmas eve dinner!!

  11. White on Rice Couple

    The tomatoes we used were jarred, not fresh. Our garden tomatoes this year never made it to any jars, only to the dinner table. But we’ll definitely be using fresh sun dried tomatoes next year!

  12. shayne

    oh wow this looks so good but not something to make for yourself…now I need to find a party so I have a reason to make it.

    I too would likt to knwo if the dried tomatoes are jarred or fresh/homemade

  13. Lydia (The Perfect Pantry)

    Another great recipe that would adapt well to the slow-roasted tomatoes I put into the freezer this summer!

  14. RecipeGirl

    OH, you had me at ‘brie’ but the sundried tomato was just an added bonus, and the melted part put it over the top!

  15. Food Woolf

    Like? Me love!

    I think this is such a great and easy dish for any party. I especially love the graphics and beautiful photo of the final product…Looks like a tear-sheet from a cookbook! I’ll be first in line to buy one, btw!

  16. Leah

    Yummy! This would be delish with Champagne!

  17. glutenfreeforgood

    Okay, comments closed on the spicy chickens so I’m going to drift into your brie post to leave my message about how thrilled I am that those zippy looking wings are gluten-free (or can be very with no trouble). I love you guys!

    As for the beer caps. Looks like you were at a micro-brew beer tasting event or something. Any New Grist or Red Bridge in the mix?


  18. megan

    It looks like there is brie in my very near future!

  19. grace

    well hello there, mr. melty, ooey, gooey brie. the only thing more picturesque in my mind is melty, ooey, gooey chocolate, but i won’t discriminate. :)

  20. J.

    This is an excellent example of where a picture is worth a thousand words. It’s making me hungry! Just curious, did you make your own sun-dried tomatoes too?

  21. Hélène

    I love baked brie. Mine has pine nuts, porto, cranberries, red onions, black olives. A pure delice.

  22. Erin

    Yes please! And no I will not share the bowl. I adore brie. Thank you for this dip recipe.

  26. Suganya

    I am a sucker for sun-dried/ oven-dried tomatoes. Oooh, the cheesy goodness.

  27. shavedicesundays

    Gonna bookmark this one for the Superbowl!

  28. Jen Yu

    That looks sinfully delish. Are you guys as busy as I am? Because I feel like I can barely keep up with my buds let alone my blogging… Gosh, I wish you were here… or me there. No wait, we have snow – so I wish you guys were here. With the dip. And the pups. :) xxoo

  29. Heather

  30. Jesse

  31. Abigail

    OK, I just had breakfast over here in Japan but I’m already HUGELY hungry because of this post. It’s all YOUR fault. Thanks a lot. :)

    (Baby’s napping at the moment so I can actually use punctuation and capitals! Oh, oh, he’s waking up…better run…)

  32. matt wright

    sweet baby jesus this looks so darn good. I love brie, and this just adds another layer of awesome to it!

    Great stuff guys. Really great photos too.

  33. Christie @ fig&cherry

    You two are geniuses! That’s it. 😉

  34. Sheetal

    Such torture cannot be good for me. Off to get me some Brie!

  35. maryann

    That is just calling my name!

  36. Passionate Eater

    Even though your post is short and simple, that is all you needed to say! Your description of, “Melted Brie + tangy, sundried tomatoes + aromatic garlic + fragrant thyme + heat + bread = FABULOUS!!” and those pictures killed me. I am hungry like a bear now.

  37. Rita

    Huummmm, you heat my soft spot…brie…. I never had it with sun-dried tomatoes, I bet it’s delicious. Love the photos too!

  38. MyKitchenInHalfCups

    That is just so spot on!
    Gorgeous photos!!!

  39. Nate

    That’s a beautiful dip. I especially like the fresh thyme in it. I can see why you’d be so popular.

    Have you tried it with blackberry jam? Awesome.

  40. Peter

    This is decadent, can be pulled off summer or winter and oh so bad for you…must therefore taste great!

  41. nikkipolani

    Delicious! Can’t wait to see what you guys do for your parties this year :-)

  42. Marvin

    We love your sweet onion dip recipe and we’ve made it a few times already at home. This dip looks just as good, if not better! You two must be the king and queen of dip or something;)

  43. Manggy

    Ah, this, a crusty baguette, and a glass of red and I’m all set! It’s okay with Santa, well because 1) Santa’s not big on fasting anyway, and 2) I won’t want to eat anything else if I’ve got this already! 😉

  44. Maya

    Like?! Love it :)

  45. Julia

    This looks fabulous! I’m all about serving a variety of dips — so easy to prepare, so easy to serve. And you’re right, it doesn’t get any better than ooey, gooey. Your first photo is gorgeous!!

  46. Donald

    What a great idea! I like this a lot.

    I imagine I’d have to keep the dip warm for spreading. But I may have to give this a go this weekend for a trial run during football.

  47. Happy Cook

    Just looking to that pic i am salvaing.
    I am sure going to make this.

  48. Marc @ NoRecipes
