  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or beef broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, divided
  • 6 ounces pitted dates, coarsely chopped
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese
  • Assorted crackers or French bread baguette slices
  • Minced fresh thyme, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, saute onions in oil until tender, 3-5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, salt and cayenne; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in wine and 2 tablespoons vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is almost evaporated, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
  2. Place the dates, 3/4 cup onion mixture and remaining vinegar in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped.
  3. Place Brie on a baking sheet. Spoon date mixture over Brie; top with remaining onion mixture.
  4. Bake until heated through, 10-15 minutes. Garnish with thyme, if desired. Serve with crackers or baguette slices.
