Guinness Onion Baked Brie


St. Patrick’s Day has me on a serious Guinness kick. Funny fact: if you look up “Guinness tastes like...” soy sauce pops up on the Google search. I know this because I’m related to a non-Guinness lover (my sister). For the record, I think it is one of the most delicious, smooth and creamy beers one can drink. That is why I am bringing to you my newest Guinness recipe: baked Brie with caramelized Guinness onions. The onions are SO good by themself, but combined with the Brie, crostini and green apple, these onions are brought to another level of flavor.  


1 small wheel Brie 

1 white onion, halved and sliced

1/4 cup guinness

2 tablespoons European butter (it’s my favorite)

kosher salt

pinch of sugar

crostini, for serving

green apple slices, for serving

Begin by melting butter over medium heat in a small pan. Once melted, add the onion, season with salt, pinch of sugar and sauté for 2 minutes. Lower the heat to medium and add a splash of Guinness. Continue to cook over medium heat, adding the Guinness every 1-2 minutes. The key is low and slow slow for the onions. Once all the Guinness is added, remove from heat.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the Brie wheel on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the Guinness onions. Serve with the crostini and apples (and a Guinness if you’re like me). Enjoy!
