Baked Brie is delicious, but have you ever tried air fryer Brie? Top it with caramelized pears and you have the ultimate holiday appetizer! Best of all, this comes together quickly, making it a great addition to any party. I like for the Brie to have a crunchy exterior so a quick breading with panko does the trick. You’ll get the perfect bite of crispy and cheesy Brie — paired with the decadent caramelized pears. The combo together is the ultimate chef’s kiss!

Step 3

Spray the top with oil and bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Air fryer times vary, start checking in on your Brie around 10 minutes to ensure it stays intact.

While the Brie is in the air fryer, prepare your pears. Quarter pears, removing core. Cut into slices.
