Watermelon recipes are perfect for the summertime with its refreshing taste! Even though my family loves watermelon, we always seem to end up with extra. These Watermelon Brie Bites are the perfect way to use up your extra watermelon and get a tasty treat!
Creating a delicious party appetizer that doesn’t require a ton of work to put together and can survive through an entire party is no easy feat. With these watermelon brie bites, you can wow your guests with a unique combination of fruit and cheese that no one will be able to resist. Bonus: They are perfect one bite appetizers so no utensils are needed.
My family loves watermelon. How about yours? I usually buy a watermelon each Sunday and the kids enjoy it all week long. Of course, we do end up with extra watermelon so I am always searching for ways to use it! We love to have friends over during the summer to hang out on the deck and watermelon brie bites are the perfect little one bite appetizers to serve while we wait for the grill to warm up.
A lot of people combine watermelon and feta and that tastes delicious together. I had some leftover brie after making my peach brie dish the other day and decided to give it a try with the watermelon. It tastes amazing. Plus, it is a great way to use up extra watermelon!
Most people don’t know but there are a lot of benefits with watermelon nutrition. Even though most of it is made up of water, it is packed with nutrients. There’s a ton of vitamins, antioxidants, amino acid, lycopene, and some potassium in each bite!
These little appetizers are absolutely perfect for a summer party or just if you want a little watermelon snack. You can make the balsamic vinegar syrup ahead of time and just keep it refrigerated until you want to use it. Then, take it out of the refrigerator to warm up a little bit while you cut the watermelon and prep the arugula and brie.
