BBQ Bacon Baked Brie
Could anything make gooey, melty baked brie even better? Uh, Bacon. Simple, elegant, and a crowd-pleaser, this brie is topped with an addictive mixture of caramelized onions, bacon, and a quick, homemade barbeque seasoning. Add your favorite bread, crackers, and fruit – or make it the centerpiece of a cheese board.
4 slices bacon, diced into ½” pieces
1½ cup yellow onion, sliced thin
1 Tbsp Sweet Onion Sugar
2 tsp Tailgater’s Spice Blend
1 tsp Vinegar Powder
½ tsp Smoked BBQ Rub
8 oz Brie cheese wheel (5”or 6”)
1 loaf baguette, toasted and cut into ½” slices
Preheat oven to 350°F. Add diced bacon to a small, nonstick, oven-proof saucepan; spread pieces evenly. Cover bacon with sliced onions and place pan on stovetop over medium heat (do not stir).
Once pan heats up and bacon begins to sizzle, gently stir the onions and bacon until combined. Continue cooking over medium heat until mixture turns golden brown, stirring frequently, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. (If mixture becomes too dark, lower heat to medium-low and continue cooking.)
When mixture is a rich golden brown, remove pan from stove. Add sugar, spice blend, vinegar powder, and BBQ rub; stir until combined. Time saver: this mixture can be made up to 2 days in advance.
Push the mixture to the edges of pan to create an empty space in the center. Place the cheese wheel in the center of the pan and spoon the mixture on top; bake uncovered for 15 minutes.
Serve directly in the saucepan or transfer cheese to a plate using a large spatula. Serve immediately with toasted bread, crackers, and sliced fruit.
Preparation Instructions: Add 1 cup orzo to 2 cups rapidly boiling water. Return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 12-14 mins. Add to soups during last 12 mins. of cooking. 1 cup dry yields 2 cups cooked.
