It’s coming up to party season and this type of food is so good for entertaining. I came up with this recipe because I just love the idea of cracked black pepper zing against mild creamy brie, and it worked just right.

If there are any left over, keep in the fridge for another time.
Beat your egg in a small bowl and crack the black pepper corns in a pestle and mortar.

Cut the outside white from your brie very thinly so that there is no waste cheese, then cut into six equal portions, roll into balls and flatten slightly to get a nice shape.

Now set yourself up a little production line, beaten egg, breadcrumbs and cracked black pepper.
Take each ball of brie and coat it in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs pressing them in with your hand, now back in the egg and back in the breadcrumbs again then press them top and bottom in the pepper.
