A ripe, pungent round of brie takes on sweet, warm overtones when filled with onions, mushrooms and dates. To caramelize onions and mushrooms cook slowly in butter over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown - about 25 minutes.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) wheel Brie cheese
In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter and caramelize onions and mushrooms; add dates and warm mixture for about 2 minutes.
Slice the Brie wheel in half down the center so that there is a top and a bottom; fill with the onion mixture. Replace the top of the Brie.
Microwave Brie for 1 to 3 minutes or until bubbly; serve.
