Brie Fondue

1 1/2 pound Brie cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 pound thinly sliced prosciutto ham or country ham
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 (28 ounce) sourdough round bread

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a 6 inch round souffle dish, layer all ingredients in the dish in order (not the sourdough bread): Brie on the bottom, followed by ham, etc.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted completely. It is best to cover the dish with foil for the first 10 minutes or so to prevent the almonds from burning.

Carve out a hole in the sourdough round, the size of the souffle dish. Cube the bread taken from the center of the round. When the brie is done, place the dish into the hole of the bread and serve, dipping the bread cubes from the Brie mixture.

Yield 8 to 10 servings.
