Festive Baked Brie

Rich, smooth Brie cheese accented with caramelized onions is reminiscent of fondue. With a red and green tomato and herb topping, it's quite a showpiece on a holiday table.


6 to 8 servings


1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
dash pepper
1 (8 ounce) round Brie cheese
assorted crackers


In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onion in butter and oil for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently; set aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, parsley, basil and pepper. Remove rind from the top of the Brie; place Brie in an ungreased ovenproof serving dish. Top with tomato mixture and onion mixture.

Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is softened. Serve warm with crackers.
