Keyword: gluten free, recipe for baked brie
Servings: 8


  • 1 8oz Wheel of Brie Cheese, packaging removed
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 large Yellow Onions sliced thin
  • ½ teaspoon Dried thyme
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 2.8oz Jar Hormel Bacon Pieces


  • Place the brie wheel on a parchment lined baking sheet and pre-heat the oven to 350F. Using a sharp knife, score the top of the brie in an criss-cross. Set aside.
  • Cut the onions in half from root to end and remove the outer skin. Cut in thin slices. Add the butter to a cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. When the butter is melted, add the onions. When the onions are soft, but still white, add the thyme, salt, and ¾ of the Hormel Bacon Pieces. Let the onions slowly cook until they are soft and a rich caramel brown.
  • After you have added the seasonings to the onions, put your brie in the oven for 20 minutes to bake.
  • Remove from the oven, carefully place on a serving platter and top with the caramelized onions. Finish with remaining Hormel Bacon Pieces and serve with crackers.
