Baked Brie with Bacon Marmalade

For the marmalade you’ll need:

  • about 4 strips of smoked bacon, diced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into 1/8 ” strips
  • zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tab. Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons of boiling water

 

  • an egg wash (1 egg, 1/4 cup milk
  • pastry
  • 1 round of Brie or Camembert*

sauté the onions in the bacon fat until caramelized, then add the bacon back as well as the other ingredients.

Set aside while you roll out your pastry about 1/4 inch thick. and cut out a top, bottom and 1 long strip for the sides…

Place some of the Bacon Marmalade  on top of the brie and assemble the crust.  My husband was sent out to buy a Brie but he came home with a Camembert….and it worked out just fine!*

You will need a generous amount of egg wash to glue all the pieces of pastry together. Take a bit of extra time to ensure all the seams are glued together.  The enclosure for the cheese is just slightly larger that the brie itself to allow for expansion of the pastry…

I made some decorations from leftover bits of pasty and applied them to the seam on the side to help keep it together.  I carefully covered the entire pie with an egg wash to make it shiny and golden…At this point you could refrigerate overnight if need be, either way do allow the pie to rest for at least 1/2 hour before you bake it and re-check the seams…

Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes.

Be sure to let the pie rest for about 1/2-2 hours before cutting

*as I mentioned, my husband bought a Camembert instead of a Brie…I think the Camembert was better….just sayin’…

    I’ve been lucky enough to have tried this twice and its DELICIOUS! The bacon marmalade should be sold in tubs because you can put that sh#@ on anything!
