Baked Brie with Caramelized Onions and Bacon

brie with carmel onions bacon

I love caramelized onions, and they marry well with Brie.   Baked Brie is a classic.  It is served with toast or bread. It is usually made with jellies, fruits and nuts or some combination.  I made this one with caramelized onions left over from an apple onion hot pepper chutney, which, to me, sounds so good with this cheese.  Then as everyone knows bacon makes everything better so we sprinkled it with bacon pieces.

To save time I baked the brie in the microwave and started the onions there also.

Ingredients Baked Brie:

1 mini brie

caramelized onions

two slices of bacon

Ingredients of the caramelized onions:

3 large onions, chopped

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon of corn oil

 Preparation of onions:

To speed up the cook time, place the chopped onions in a glass baking dish in the microwave on high for 4 minutes. Transfer to a saucepan with the oil and butter and cook for 10 minutes over low heat. Increase heat to medium and cook until onions become caramelized, about 15 minutes.

Preparation of baked Brie:

Line a plate with paper towels and arrange the bacon slices. Microwave for 1 ½ minutes.  Then let cool and break it into pieces.

Remove the top of the brie and place a spoonful of onions on cheese. Microwave for 1 minute and sprinkle with bacon. Enjoy!
