Baked Brie with Caramelized Onion, Bacon & Balsamic Jam
Baked brie is ALWAYS a go-to when entertaining. Its creamy, delicious, easy, and very impressive. Want to make the literal best baked brie of your life?? Top it with my caramelized onion, bacon, & balsamic jam which SOUNDS difficult but I promise you its not. People might shed a tear no joke. You’re welcome.
3 slices bacon, diced small
1 large sweet onion
5 sprigs thyme, leaves removed
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 round brie
Crackers & sliced baguette for serving
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
In a pan over medium heat add the sliced bacon. Cook until you see the fat rendering, about a minute or two
To the pan add in the sliced onion. Cook the onions, stirring often, for about 10 minutes or until they’re a beautiful golden color. Be careful your pan is not too hot or else they will burn!
Once the onions have caramelized nicely add in the thyme leaves, pinch of salt, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar. Stir to combine and let it cook until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Set aside (or make ahead of time!) while the brie cooks
Put the brie in an oven proof serving dish and into the preheated oven. Bake until starting to bubble and melt, about 15 minutes
Once out and hot, top with the jam, and serve with crackers and sliced baguette
WARNING: everyone will go NUTS over this.
