Just about everyone loves a dab of baked Brie.  Now, cover it with a rum soaked fig cranberry sauce? I hope you bought two.

Today’s post is really important so, run to the market – grab the few things you forgot and one extra round of brie, and get back here asap!

This baked brie is my ‘official’ contribution to #CaptainsTable recipe for Thanksgiving.  A simple but delicious rum soaked slow cooked cranberry sauce with figs over a warm brie served as a beautiful morsel before the feast. Or if you are entertaining this season, this appetizer is a perfect addition to any  holiday spread. This recipe couldn’t be simpler and it looks and tastes like it was hand made by Iron Chef Batali himself. (I’m not sure who the Iron Chef of cheese would be but he seems like a good fit).

What’s #CaptainsTable? It’s a little giving back Captain Morgan himself (you know, like Santa, but with booze) is doing. For every tweet we get using hashtag #CaptainsTable, Captain Morgan is going to donate $1 to WhyHunger, a charity help end hunger . All the recipes submitted by our fun team of bloggers will be judged by Top Chef  Hugh Acheson. There are several of us participating – so go check out the hashtag on social media and retweet so we can earn a great pirate style bounty for charity this season!

Oh my god this looks so good. Baked bries are some of my favorite things to serve and eat during the holidays. When I catered I made a lot of them, but always with the puff pastry or phyllo dough. This looks so much easier, but equally as delicious. Can't wait to do this! Thanks, and gorgeous photos!
