Brie cheese and chardonnay are good together. I know, you know, everyone knows. And when I am lazy, I love a cracker topped with Brie just as much as you do. But if you have a few mins to spare, why not kick your food and wine pairing up a notch and make these brie, apple and caramelized onion bruschetta’s? As always, the recipe is quick and easy, so anyone can make it!
Brie, Apple and Caramelized Onion Bruschetta
Time: 25 mins (10 mins prep time, 15 mins cook time)
- 1 baguette
- 125 g Brie (feel free to use more), sliced
- 1 green apple, cut into thin slices
- 2 medium to large onions
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp butter
- Preheat the oven to 220 °C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Cut the baguette into slices and place onto the parchment paper. Spread a little butter on both sides.
- While the oven preheats, make the caramelized onions. Melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Slice the onions and add them to the saucepan.
- Add the balsamic vinegar. Stir with a wooden spoon.
- Cook the onions over low heat until they are soft. Set aside.
- When the oven is ready, place the baking sheet on the top rack of the oven, and keep an eye on the toast as it can brown quickly. Depending on your oven, 2 – 3 mins on each side should do it.
- Spread the caramelized onions on each bruschetta. Top with the apple slices. Put the sliced brie on top of the apple.
- Bake until the Brie is softly melted. It took my oven 6 mins. I prefer to serve mine warm.
I would recommend drinking a chardonnay from a moderate climate (for example Burgundy) with this recipe.
