Dip the Brie through the egg, turning to coat on all sides, remove and allow any excess to drip off. Dredge the Brie through the Panko, turning to coat and pressing gently to adhere. Transfer the Brie to the freezer, freeze 15-20 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup of olive oil, the olives, and crushed red pepper flakes together in a medium skillet set over medium heat. Simmer 5 minutes, until lightly fried. Add the lemon zest, capers, and thyme, and cook another 5 minutes, until the lemon is fried. Remove from the skillet to a serving bowl. 4. To the same skillet add the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil. Remove the Brie from the freezer and place in the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. If your Brie punctures, don't stress, just keep cooking. Carefully transfer the Brie to a serving plate.5. Serve the Brie warm, topped with fried olives and honey. Enjoy with crackers or bread.
