Grilled Brie with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

  • Prep Time: 5 m
  • Cook Time: 55 m
  • Total Time: 1 h
  • Servings:


  • 2 pints red and yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 8 ounce Brie cheese wheel
  • olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning optional
  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread or baguette
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • balsamic glaze optional


  1. Pre-heat air fryer to 225ºF.
  2. Toss the cherry tomatoes in a bowl with the olive, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Air-fry the cherry tomatoes for 45 minutes, tossing them at least 3 times during the cooking time. The tomatoes should be soft and some of them will burst open. Let the tomatoes cool down a little and then stir in the fresh parsley.
  3. Pre-heat your outdoor grill to medium-low heat. Brush both sides of the Brie wheel with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, if using.
  4. Slice the bread into ½ inch slices. If you are using baguette, slice it on the bias. Brush one side of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread on both sides until lightly browned. Set the bread aside on your serving platter.
  5. Place the Brie wheel directly on the grill grate. After 3 minutes or so, when the Brie has grill marks on the bottom, flip it over and mark the second side. Lower the flame on your grill and let the Brie heat through until it is soft and melted, another 5 to 10 minutes. The Brie will be soft to the touch and start to expand a little. Watch carefully and remove the Brie before the rind cracks and the cheese starts to leak out. Transfer the wheel to your serving platter.
  6. Drizzle the Brie with balsamic glaze (if using) and sprinkle the basil on top. And serve immediately with the toasted bread slices and roasted tomatoes.

    1. Hi Wendy,
      You can quick sauté them in a skillet, or spread them out on a sheet pan and roast them in the oven at 375ºF to 400ºF for about 20 minutes.

    1. Hi Cynthia. If you want to make the brie in the air fryer, use 350ºF and air-fry for 8 to 10 minutes. Be sure to cut a circle of parchment paper to put underneath the brie. This will help if the brie cracks and starts to leak out.
