Toasted Almond Brie

Get your grill nice and hot, mean time slice your bread or french stick in to thick slices of about 1 inch and place thinly sliced brie on one side, topped with almonds under the grill. Toast and serve hot with your soup.This really is the cherry on top of the cake.

Using the middle of the cheese and not the rind roll little balls or nuggets and drop them in the hot soup before serving.
