Festive holiday appetizers are my favorite, including today’s Warm Brie Cranberry Naan.

When I go to parties I like to nibble on the appetizers the most. I think that having a variety of appetizers at a party is key to happy guests. When I put together a menu of appetizers I try to have a variety of dips and spreads, a few finger foods to nibble on, a cheese plate with olives and warm dips.

Warm Brie Cranberry Naan is the perfect combination of warm, creamy brie cheese with sweet cranberry sauce and sprinkled with fresh rosemary.  Brie and cranberries are like a match made in heaven, in my opinion.  I love the sweet cranberry sauce and the warm, creamy brie cheese. The fresh rosemary is the perfect finishing touch. I used Stonefire Mini Naan bread ,which I love for not only appetizers but all sorts of snacks and meals for my family.

The nice thing about the mini naan is that it fits in the toaster so you can eat it as toast with avocado or top with peanut butter, banana and strawberry for an after school snack.  

When making today’s Warm Brie Cranberry Naan I topped each mini naan with brie, cranberry sauce and quickly warmed it up in the oven. Once you pull it out of the oven you can leave them whole or you can slice them into small bite sized pieces. This recipe easily doubles or triples if you are feeding a large crowd.

When I went to BlogHer Food Conference in Chicago a couple of months ago I attended a delicious dinner with Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads. It was not only fun to meet the team and other bloggers at the event, but I learned how versatile naan is. We eat it especially when I make Indian or Mediterranean food to soak up all the good juices.

But that is just the start of how you can use naan bread. There are so many “Naan-Traditional” ways you can use it.

Another way I love using naan is to make pizzas, like this Mediterranean Naan Pizza . Stonefire now makes a large pizza sized naan flatbread for all your pizza making needs. My husband is pizza obsessed and he gave naan pizza a big thumbs up. You can get as basic as throwing pizza sauce on the naan pizza crust followed by mozzarella cheese and vegetables.

Other creative ways to use naan bread is in desserts, sandwiches, taco shells or even dippers for your favorite spreads. I especially love using the naan for appetizers because I think it is a nice, clean slate that you can load with your favorite toppings on like today’s Warm Brie Cranberry Naan.

When making this Warm Brie Cranberry Naan you can prep the cranberry orange sauce the day before. Then when you are ready to make the appetizer you just have to layer your ingredients on the naan, warm it up and serve that beautiful, festive appetizer to your guests.

Total Time: 25 minutes

Warm Brie Cranberry Naan is a festive, naan-traditional holiday appetizer. Mini naan bread is topped with warm, creamy brie cheese, a sweet cranberry sauce, and finished off with freshly chopped rosemary.

Ingredients

For the orange cranberry sauce:

  • 12 oz. bag of fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest

For the Warm Brie Cranberry Naan:

  • 1 - 7.05 oz package Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads, Tandoor Baked Mini Naan
  • 6 oz. brie chese {I used the double creme version}
  • 1/2 cup orange cranberry sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly chopped rosemary + more for garnish

Instructions

  1. The night before you are going to make the Warm Brie Cranberry Naan prepare the cranberry orange sauce. In a large pot bring the 3/4 sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. Add the cranberries, orange juice and orange zest to the pot and simmer until the cranberries are popped, about 10-15 minutes. Let cool and then remove and put in an airtight container in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a baking sheet lay the four mini naans.
  3. Remove the brie from the packaging and gently spread a layer of brie on each naan bread and set back on the baking tray.
  4. Use a teaspoon to spoon a thin layer of cranberry sauce on each naan bread. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges of the naan begin to crisp up and the brie is melted.
  5. Remove and sprinkle the fresh rosemary on the naan and enjoy warm!

Notes

You can serve these as a whole mini naan style appetizer or you can cut them into slices making them more of a finger food.

You can leave the rosemary off or use a different herb such as basil, thyme or oregano.

If you don't want to have the leftover cranberry sauce just half the recipe and save the other than of the bag of cranberries in the freezer.
