Reviews for Baked Onion Brie Spread
"I made this for a football party and even the bread bowl was devoured! Making it again today."
"This has a velvety texture and a wonderful savory flavor. It takes a while to bake, but that is great in terms of being able to put it into the oven then going to get ready before your guests arrive. It was a big hit!"
