Baked Brie with Cherries, Almonds and Bagels
3 Panera Cherry Vanilla, Pink Ribbon, French Toast, and/or Cinnamon Raisin bagels
2 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 small wheel (about 8 ounces) brie cheese
2 tablespoons cherry jam
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Cut bagels into 1-inch cubes.
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in almonds and cook until lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in cinnamon and remove from heat.
Center wheel of brie on a small round baking dish or glass pie plate. Spread jam over brie and top with almond mixture.
Bake until brie is very soft and scoopable, 7 to 8 minutes.
Place the dish on a trivet and serve with bagel cubes for scooping the oozing cheese.
