While my son was home for Thanksgiving I asked him for a suggestion on what to do with the Trader Joe’s brie that I had purchased. Knowing his love for cheese, I knew he would come up with something fairly quickly. He suggested caramelizing some onions, adding some bacon and putting this on a baguette covered in brie goat cheese. Which is exactly what we did.
Brie with Caramelized Onions
1 crusty baguette cut into 1 inch slices
one round of brie
two medium onions thinly sliced
1 tbsp. smart balance butter spread
1/2 package real bacon salad toppings
Cut your baguette and lay the slices on a baking pan. Spread a small amount of brie on each slice.
Preheat your oven to 425. Saute your onions in a pan with the butter spread. Add your bacon pieces when the onions are about half done.
Keep your onions over low heat to keep them warm and place your brie covered slices into the oven to melt. Watch them closely, this will only take 3-5 minutes.
Remove the slices and place a small amount of the onion topping onto each slice of bread.
Drizzle with balsamic glaze and enjoy.
