The Deets:
This recipe is part of a recipe series I do with Le Creuset where we reimagine recipes using their mini cocottes. This version stacks brie and cana de cabra goat cheese, and all bakes together in the cocotte. I then topped with spicy jam and a sage brown butter for the perfect centerpiece for a holiday appetizer!

Cocotte baked brie versus a regular baked brie:
What is so fun about baking brie in a cocotte versus a regular baked brie is that you can combine multiple cheese together for more exciting flavors and options. Additionally, the mini cocottes look beautiful on a cheese plate and are just a wonderful add for hosting or laying out a beautiful holiday appetizer.

Make it Mini:
Make it Mini is an ongoing series with Le Creuset where we reimagine recipes using their mini cocottes. The series has been going on for 2+ years now, and we’ve really created quite an arsenal of recipes. So if you just got a new mini cocotte are looking for what to make, there are several fun, seasonal and delicious recipes to choose from.

The Sage Butter:
This baked brie is made even more festive with the buttery sage that is poured overtop. Not only does it make your house smell amazing, but it pairs so well with the cheeses and the jam. It’s an extra step that only takes a few minutes to make and is so good!

Print Recipe


  • 1 wedge brie (if it’s too big for the mini, use a knife to cut off the sides of the brie. I then just served the excess on the board to not waste any part of it)
  • 1 wedge cana de cabra goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp hot or regular honey
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • A few sprigs sage
  • 2 tbsp jam of choice (this is a cranberry hot chili jam)
  • Crackers, nuts, bread etc that you would want to serve with your brie and goat cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 350. Add honey to the bottom of the cocotte and then add the cana de cabra goat cheese. Add honey to the top of that, and then add brie. Add honey to the top of that and then bake for 7-8 min. 
  • Meanwhile, make your sage butter by melting butter in a skillet. Once it’s melted, add a few sprigs of sage. Cook until butter starts to caramelize and brown. 
  • Add jam to the top of cooked brie/goat cheese and then drizzle sage butter over top of that. Pair with whatever crackers, nuts, fruit of your choice for the perfect holiday app. Enjoy!
