  1. : For the filling: First, spray a nonstick skillet with a little cooking spray and then heat the pan over medium heat. Next, add the mushrooms and the thyme and sauté them for 2 minutes. Then, add the vermouth to the mushrooms and simmer it all for aroumd 4-6 minutes. It's good to simmer it all until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms become tender. To put is all together: First, make sure you don't take the rind off of the cheese. Then, slice the wheel in half to make two flat pieces (like 2 slices of bread). Next, spread the mushroom mixture over the bottom half of the Brie cheese and sprinkle the goat cheese evenly on top of the mushrooms. You'll then add a few pinches of nutmeg and put the other "slice" of the Brie on top. Press down gently. Now, on to the puffed pastry part of this recipe. Lightly flour some kind of working surface and roll out the two pieces of thawed puffed pastry. Cut the pastry dough into 2 twelve inch circles. Here's the fun part. Place the Brie on one of the circles of puff pastry and when necessary, pleat to pull up and fit the pastry over the side of the Brie. It shouldn't cover the top of the cheese. Next, carefully take the Brie and invert it onto the other circle. Do the same thing and pleat and pull the pastry up over the wheel. All this can be done well in advance of your party or gathering. Simply wrap the Brie in plastic wrap and chill it in your refrigerator for at least 2 hours. When you are getting close to serving the stuffed Brie, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Next, line a baking pan with a rim with cooking parchment paper. Take out your chilled Brie and remove the plastic wrap. Place the cheese with the seam side down on a baking pan and brush the top with the egg. Bake the Brie 25-30 minutes or until the puffed pastry turns a golden color. Serving It Simply, let the cheese rest for about 20 minutes before serving. Then, take the cheese out of the baking pan and serve it on a festive party platter with fruit and bread or crackers.
