So. The Oscars. Loved them. Loved Chris Rock and Leo and the whole sha-bang. I probably have more to say on this at some point, but for now, let’s talk cheese!

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you already know that my friend Rob and I have been watching the Oscars together for eleven years. It’s basically our own little pop culture Superbowl. You also know that we’ve evolved a tradition of making food based on terrible puns for that year’s nominated films.

Bridge of Fries, Mark Ruffalo Chicken Dip, The Big Short Ribs, and a delicious Mad Max Gasoline cocktail were all on the menu this year. But I got the most recipe requests for this terrible pun of the movie Room, so I thought I’d share:

Baked Brie (Larson) in a Croissant “Room” (with Berry Compote)

BakedBrieLawson1 cup mixed berries

1 stick butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup triple sec or brandy

2 cans refrigerated croissant dough

1 small (about 6″) round of brie

Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt the butter and sugar in a saucepan. Add the triple sec and stir until smooth. Add berries and simmer on medium until berries are soft. Spray an 8-inch pie pan with cooking spray, roll out one can of croissants across the bottom of pan. Place brie in the center of the pan on top of croissant dough. Pour berries over top of brie and cover with second can of croissants. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
