Baked Onion Brie Spread

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

    2-3/4 cups


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons butter

    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!
