French bread with tomato-Brie butter, baked to a golden brown with a totally distracting kitten.
1/2 lb. soft, ripened Brie, cut into chunks
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, cut into chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 loaf French bread, halved lengthwise
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place Brie, butter, garlic and tomato paste in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping the bowl a couple of times. Arrange bread halves on baking sheet and spread with Brie butter. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with a salad for dinner, or slice 1" strips and serve as an appetizer at a party.
