I love brie. The umami flavor is one of my favorites. Combined with the mushrooms, onions, garlic and wine, this cheese appetizer is divine. I love that it does not include puff pastry or the like. With this recipe, the flavors shine through, unencumbered by extra breading.


Baked Brie with Mushrooms and Onions

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 small wheel of brie
  • 1 baguette, sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in a pan. Saute onions until clear and starting to brown. Add mushrooms, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Saute until mushrooms are tender. Add wine and deglaze the pan. Cook until most of the juices are reduced. In a small oven safe dish, place the wheel of brie. Top with the mushrooms mixture. Bake for approx 10 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with slices of baguette.
