2 RealSweet® Premium Sweet Onions, sliced
1 lb bacon
1 tbsp unsalted butter
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup whiskey
¼ cup water
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
Balsamic vinegar (such as espresso flavored balsamic vinegar or fig) for drizzling
1 wheel Brie with the top crust sliced off
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 1 hr
1Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2In a Dutch oven or cast iron skillet, cook the bacon until crispy, then remove from the pan, reserving 2 tablespoons of bacon grease. Discard the rest of the grease.
3Add the reserved bacon grease and butter to the drippings in the pan. Warm over medium heat.
4Add red wine vinegar, whiskey, water, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard. Stir and bring to a simmer.
5Stir in sweet onions and cover. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove cover, stir, and continue to simmer for 30 minutes.
6Carefully transfer ⅔ of the bacon jam into a food processor or blender. Purée until just chopped, then stir in the other ⅓ of the jam.
7Place Brie into a medium-sized oven serving dish with edges (cheese will spread after cutting into it). Top with bacon jam and bake for 15 minutes.
8Drizzle generously with balsamic vinegar.
9Serve immediately with crackers or bread. Enjoy!
