Fromage Fort

Dear Ryan and Tracy,

I intended to bring baked brie to your house for new years eve but it blew up in a big way and all the cheese drained out of the bread. See:


So, remembering #42 (coincidentally the answer to life, the universe and everything) in Saveur's  "The Saveur 100" list I made Fromage Fort from exploded baked brie. You're welcome!

To make:

Fill the bowl of your food processor with leftover cheese. For me that was the melted insides of a wheel of brie, some leftover white stilton with cranberries and some syrah soaked toscano from Trader Joe's. Add 1/4 cup dry white wine (I had cava so that's what I used) and a clove of garlic. Pulse until it looks like this:

I am going to serve this with raisin rosemary crackers from Trader Joe's but whatever you have will be fine. I didn't measure the cheese and it worked out really well. If you are not a kitchen gambler you can follow this recipe here.
