143.0...Brie Saute with Green Onions

 My annual swap party was last night. Just in case you’re not sure what a swap party is…you bring all your clothes/shoes/accessories that you don’t want or wear anymore and let everyone have at it! No rules….just take what you want. New clothes for free! :)

Besides clothes, I also have everyone bring a heavy appetizer to share. After I had Brie Sauté with Green Onions in cooking class recently, I knew then that that’s what I wanted to make for my party.

Brie Sauté with Green Onions (Serves 4-6)

Recipe from Phillis Carey


1 (8 ounce) round Brie

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs

4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided use

1/2 cup chopped green onion tops

1 small bread baguette, sliced


1. Dip the cheese in egg and then coat with breadcrumbs. Repeat on second side. Melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat in a small nonstick skillet. Add the green onions and toss briefly.

2. Add remaining butter to skillet. When foamy, add the breaded cheese. Brown well on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is warm.

3. Place cheese on a serving platter. Pour butter and green onions over top of cheese and serve immediately with bread slices.

I may have overcooked the onions a bit but it was still outstanding!! 

For Tuesday’s dinner, I pulled some leftover Ground Beef and Pasta Casserole out of the freezer to reheat. I made a Caesar salad to go with it. Easy!

I took the kids to school then went to the grocery store to get stuff for my swap party. I grabbed some sushi for lunch.

It was time for the swap party to start! Everyone bought their clothes and we had a great time “shopping”, eating and enjoying some wine.

I think I could eat sushi every day and not get sick of it.

When’s the last time you cleaned out your closet?
