Baked brie is one of the best party tricks in the book, and there’s a reason. It’s easy, it’s cheesy, and it always looks like you tried even though it’s effortless. I’m sure I don’t need to sell this recipe to you, but just in case here’s a few reasons why I love it.
First, caramelized onions! It takes some time to do this, but it’s always well worth it. They’re surprisingly buttery and melt together with cheese easily.
Next, baked brie. It’s like a controlled lava flow. The rind of the cheese keeps everything in place as it melts, but once you break that skin it’s game over.
Finally, this recipe is only four ingredients! Along with the onions and cheese there’s honey for sweetness and thyme to balance out the sweet and rich flavors.
Give this one a go next time you have a friend or two coming over, or if you’re like me, it’s the weekend and it’s time to celebrate.
