  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Arrange bread, in a single layer, on a baking tray. Lightly spray with olive oil spray. Bake, turning occasionally, for 5-6 mins or until light golden and crisp. Cool.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, scatter the walnuts over a baking tray. Bake for 5 mins or until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.
  3. Step 3

    Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the brie on the baking tray. Use a small sharp knife to cut 12 small slashes on the top of the brie. Place a thyme sprig in each hole. Drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper. Bring the edges of the baking paper up to the centre to enclose. Twist to secure. Bake for 10 mins or until the brie is soft when lightly pressed.
  4. Step 4

    Place the brie in its paper on a serving platter. Open the paper and sprinkle with walnuts and drizzle with honey. Serve immediately with toasts.
