Cook Time




  • 8 ounce wheel of brie cheese
  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic glaze or reduction


Make the pesto by adding basil, pine nuts, garlic, parmesan, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in the blender and blend until smooth. Add more olive oil if too thick for the blender to blend.

Preheat the Wolf Speed Oven on Convection Mode to 350°F and scrape the top rind off the brie with a knife.

Spread pesto on top of brie cheese.

Top with chopped pine nuts.

Bake in the preheated Wolf Speed Oven for 10-12 minutes or until the brie in the center is melted.

Remove from Wolf Speed Oven and drizzle with balsamic reduction.

Serve with your choice of bread or crackers.
