- 1½ pounds seedless red grapes, halved (approximately 4 cups)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil*
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
- ¾ cup brie spread** (approximately 6.5 ounces)
- 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen puff pastry shells, prepared according to package directions
- 5 slices center-cut bacon, cooked and finely chopped
- ¼ cup fig preserves**
- Garnish: fresh thyme leaves and chopped cooked bacon
- Preheat oven to 400°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- On prepared baking sheet, toss together grapes, oil, salt, and pepper. Bake until grapes are softened and lightly browned, approximately 18 minutes. Add thyme and orange zest, carefully tossing until combined.
- Place brie in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 10-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until slightly melted, approximately 30 seconds. Divide warm brie among pastry shells.
