Baked Brie with Jammy Onions
1 large wheel of brie
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 large red onions, cut into slivers
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice (optional)
Handful of leafy greens or watercress, for garnish (optional)
Heat a large skillet to medium and add oil. Sauté onions until they turn a deep caramel color and begin to release their water, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add vinegar and brown sugar and continue to cook until the vinegar reduces and sugar caramelizes, about 5 minutes. Be careful to stir frequently at this point so as not to burn the sugar. Once the onions have taken on a jam-like consistency, remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Place brie wheel on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes, until brie begins to soften.

Remove brie from oven, place on a serving dish and top with about 1/2 cup of the onion mixture, more if you like. Top with greens, if desired and serve immediately.
