INGREDIENTS

  • 2 rashers streaky bacon, cut into strips
  • 1 large brown onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
  • 200-250g round brie or camembert

METHOD

  1. Watch the video on how to make this recipe 
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced).
  3. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat and fry bacon until crispy. Add onions and fry for 5 minutes, stirring often until softened and slightly caramelized. Add maple syrup, vinegar, thyme and mustard seeds and stir until combined. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until liquid has reduced and mixture is sticky.
  4. Place brie on a small piece of baking paper on a baking tray or on an ovenproof serving plate. Top evenly with jam. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until Brie is warmed through. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving with slices of toasted bread.

HANDY TIPS

Shortcut While this recipe is super quick, make it even quicker by pan-frying the bacon until crispy and stirring through store bought caramelized onion jam/ relish. Pour over cheese and bake as per recipe. The trick with baking brie is to not be tempted to use a wedge of brie instead. It needs the crusty white mould exterior to hold in the melted creamy interior.
