This Pastry Wrapped Brie with Roasted Grapes is a fun and easy appetizer that's sure to impress your family and friends! #ad #WalmartProduceEveryone needs a go-to fancy appetizer.  A bag of chips or pretzels works great in a pinch, but sometimes you just need something a bit more gourmet.  I don’t know about you, but I’m not always in the mood to spend hours in the kitchen preparing aforementioned gourmet appetizer.  That’s when I turn to this Pastry Wrapped Brie with Roasted Grapes.  Sounds super fancy, right?  Well, guess what?  It’s also super easy!

This Pastry Wrapped Brie with Roasted Grapes is a fun and easy appetizer that's sure to impress your family and friends! #ad #WalmartProduceLast weekend, my wife and I invited the neighbors over for a fun, laid-back Friday evening.  I’d seen some awesome red grapes earlier in the week at Walmart, and I instantly knew what I wanted to make with them.  If you’ve never roasted grapes before, then you are missing out!  Stop reading this post, and go roast some grapes.  Right now.  I like to add a pinch of black pepper and cinnamon, and I seriously think I could eat these roasted grapes with a spoon!

I’ve got to give a shout-out to my wife, though, since it was her idea to take those roasted grapes and put them over a wheel of brie cheese.  Brie is often topped with a jam, but these roasted grapes take the appetizer to a whole new level…and for a minimal amount of extra work.  Spoon the roasted grapes over the brie and then wrap the whole thing in puff pastry.  This is one easy appetizer that’s sure to impress your friends and family!

This Pastry Wrapped Brie with Roasted Grapes is a fun and easy appetizer that's sure to impress your family and friends! #ad #WalmartProduceWe often keep a bag of grapes in the fridge for a quick, healthy snack.  When California grapes are at their peak (right now!), I typically snip off a bunch to eat alongside a sandwich at lunch.  Grab some extra grapes and make this fun appetizer for the weekend!  Enjoy!

  1. David – if you and your wife keep inviting the neighbors over for delectable eats – they are never gonna wanna move…you are throwing a huge wrench in my plans to move next door to y’all and eat ALL your leftovers! Yeesh!
    🙂
    I remember that flatbread you made with grapes baked on top was indeed a genius suggestion by your wife – and now she’s suggesting roasted grapes? I think she needs to start splitting your earnings! 😉

    1. Woah, woah, woah there, Shashi. Laura does come up with good suggestions…but she is just the consultant here. Split my earnings?? Yeah, right! Haha! And for the record, there are a couple houses in the neighborhood for sale. I’d make the trek several doors down to bring leftovers…just because I’m nice like that! 🙂

    1. *puff* Dave just disappeared in a cloud of white smoke. See, I really am a magician over here, Becca! If it were me, I would have added some bacon…because we all know bacon makes everything better, right? Haha!!

    1. Haha…thanks, Chris! I think Laura prefers to remain “part-time food blog consultant.” I’ve told her I’m going to hire her as an assistant, but she says I can’t afford her rates. The nerve. 🙂

  2. Roasting grapes? That’s so clever, I want to try it asap. And kudos to your wife Laura for coming up with such a brilliant idea.
    So I’m guessing, she’s the brain and you’re just a pretty face…right? 😉

  3. So genius! I love grapes. I love baked brie. I love anything wrapped in pastry. This is like my ultimate weakness! I haven’t tried roasted grapes because I am still stuck in frozen grape season down here, but clearly I have been led astray! Absolutely must try roasted grapes {and maple cream}

    1. Thanks, Kimesha! If you like brie cheese and grapes, then you’ll definitely like this fun appetizer, too. I hope you enjoy it!! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Jess! Roasted grapes are so much fun…and so easy, too. This appetizer is definitely one of my favorites. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
