    I do a ridiculously simple Brie meal: boil some pasta, drain it, add some just steamed brocolli, throw in some chunks of brie, put a lid on the pan and give it a few minutes for the brie to melt in (doesn't need to be on the heat, just make sure the pasta is just drained from boiling). Give it a stir up and you have a lovely creamy brie and brocolli pasta, kids love it!

    They should be OK in the freezer for a couple of months.
    Particularly if you defrost them in the refrigerator slowly.
    Or maybe if you are going to use them for cooking only partially defrost them, does make brie easier to handle if it's partially frozen.

    Bacon and brie melts are nice - get some bread rolls/bread of your choice (white, granary..) fry/grill bacon, split rolls in half top with bacon, top with cheese, grill until cheese melts, eat. yummmy!

    if there's too much to eat now, how about having a cook in to stock up the freezer?

    broc + stilton soup

    I had a very nice ready made dinner from Tesco, brie + potato bake.

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Competitions, or rather the Brie and bacon melts, very tasty.

    We like it stuffed in mushrooms. Just take out the stalks from small button mushrooms (use stalks for soup or stock) stuff with brie, dip in egg, roll in breadcrumbs and deep fry. Lovely with a dollop of cranberry sauce and salad.
    I have the mind of a criminal genius. I keep it in the freezer next to Mother....

    I know this is an old thread but like myself I have Brie left over from christmas I like it in a crusty baquette with chopped walnuts sprinkled into the baquette and this for some strange reason goes down well with a fresh cafetiere of coffee.
    Not in debt at the moment, but been there in the past and realise I'm the kind of person who could easily fall back into it with the self destructing spending button so making sure I keep on top of being a good girl.

    Brie and broccoli lasagne - layer steamed broccoli, slices of brie, lasagne sheets and either a bechamel or tomato sauce in a dish. Finish with a layer of sauce and sprinle with parmesan (or cheddar etc) Bake for about 40 mins at 180C. Can be made earlier in the day and baked as required

    I had loads of leftover brie from Christmas and made this the other day, using up odds and bods from the fridge.

    I put a chunk of brie and some chopped cherry tomatoes into the middle of a couple of big flat portobello mushrooms. Then I wrapped them in a few slices of black forest ham from Lidl (like Palma ham, but a smokier taste) and baked them for about 20 mins. To go with them I made a coleslaw type salad with strips of raw parsnip, carrot, beetroot and grated white cabbage in a half mayonaise/half greek yoghurt dressing.

    It was absolutely yummy (even though I do say so myself!).
