Cooking oil spray
380g 2-pack crusty baguettes (34cm long)
Olive oil cooking spray
125g piece brie cheese
2/3 cup cranberry sauce
150g sliced leg ham, off-the-bone
1 ½ cups grated mozzarella (200g)
Parsley, to garnish
Spray a 35cm round pizza tray with a perforated base with oil.
Trim ends from baguettes. Cut into 2cm slices. Place slices, cut-side up and side-by-side, on prepared tray. Spray with oil.
Cook in a hot oven (200C) for about 5 minutes, or until crisp. Remove. Stand for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut brie into ½cm wide slices. Cut each slice in half crossways.
Spread sauce over toasted bread. Top with brie then ham. Sprinkle with mozzarella.
Cook in a hot oven (200C) for about 15 minutes, or until golden and cheese is melted.
Serve garnished with parsley.
TIP! Prepare pull-apart to the end of Step 4, up to one day ahead. Wrap toasted base in plastic wrap. Store at room temperature. Refrigerate brie, covered. Assemble pull-apart just before cooking. Ham can be replaced with cooked turkey or chicken, for a change.
