Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Step 2
In a large skillet, set over medium heat, add Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . When hot, add the Fennel Bulbs (2) and sear on both sides, for 1-2 minutes per side. After you’re done with the fennel, transfer it to the bowl of your food processor.
Step 3
In the same skillet, add the Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . Add the Leeks (2) and cook, mixing often, until softened, 2-3 minutes.
Step 4
Mix in the Garlic (2 cloves) and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Step 5
Transfer the leek mixture to the food processor along with Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp) . Give it a few quick pulses just to break them down and incorporate the ingredients.
Step 6
Add the Brie Cheese (7 oz) , Parmigiano-Reggiano (1/2 cup) , and zest of the Lemon (1) . Pulse until mostly smooth, about 30 seconds. Check for seasoning and add salt if desired.
Step 7
Transfer to a small oven-safe baking dish. Top with the Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (1/4 cup) and place in the oven until the cheese is melted and browned on top, about 20-25 minutes.
Step 8
Serve warm with Crackers (to taste) . Enjoy!
