Baked Onion Brie Spread Recipe

The buttery brie-and-onion flavor of this spread just melts in your mouth. Plus, you can even eat the bread bowl, which my husband said is the best part. Lori Adams, Mooresville, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:11 servings


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 3/4 cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 round loaf (1 pound) sourdough bread

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook onion and garlic in butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until onion is golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • 2. Place Brie and cream cheese in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, uncovered, until softened. Whisk in the sour cream, brown sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and onion mixture.

"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!"
