• Prep Time 15-20 min.
  • Cook time 15-20 min. for onions and 10 min. to bake the brie
  • Yield 6 to 8 people as a shared appetizer


In a cast iron pan heat butter or ghee over medium heat; fry onion, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until light golden, about 12 minutes.

Sprinkle with whole cane sugar; cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Stir in vinegar and thyme, cook for 2 minutes. Scrape into bowl; let cool. Stir in cranberries.

Spread onion mixture over cheese. Place on plate and then put plate on baking sheet; bake in 350°F oven until cheese is softened, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.

I like to serve baked brie with sourdough crackers or a store bought sourdough baguette.
