Instant Pot® Baked Brie with Apple Appetizer

This super easy and delicious appetizer is perfect for holidays and other gatherings when your oven is already in use for other items.

Tip: For a nice presentation, use a ramekin or other heat-proof bowl just large enough to fit the Brie round (approximately 4½ – 5-inch diameter and at least 1-inch deep). If you don’t have a container this size, you can wrap the round of Brie tightly with aluminum foil, as well.

Total Time 28 mins
Course Appetizer
Servings 4 - 6


  • 1 8-oz. round of Brie
  • 2 large baking apples, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 medium orange, peeled and chopped, with juice
  • 2 tbsp red onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 3 tbsp honey, preferably local
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • Fresh thyme or rosemary sprigs, for garnish

To serve: Gluten-free crackers or crostini, and/or sliced apples tossed in some lemon juice to prevent browning


    • Carefully cut the top off the round of Brie and place inside a round heat-proof bowl just large enough to hold it (see dimensions above). Place the rind back on top of the Brie and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Set aside.
    • Add the chopped apples, orange, onion, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary, honey, salt, and apple cider to the Instant Pot® and stir to combine.
    • Place the prepared round of Brie on to the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot® and carefully lower into the unit with the trivet arms up for easy removal.
    • Lock the lid into place and flip the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Set the “Manual” setting to “High” for 5 minutes.
    • When the cooking time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Once the pin drops and no additional steam comes out, carefully remove the lid before lifting out the trivet and Brie with potholders. Setaside.
    • Select the Sauté function on the highest setting. Bring the fruit mixture to a low boil while stirring frequently. Heat until the mixture thickens, approximately 2-3 minutes. Turn the unit off.
    • Remove the foil and the top piece of rind from the warm Brie. To serve, transfer to a platter and spoon some of the fruit mixtures on top. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans and garnish with small sprigs of fresh rosemary and/or thyme, if desired. Serve immediately with gluten-free crackers or crostini, and/or fresh apple slices. Enjoy!
