A festive cheesy starter for your holiday menu, with glorious melted brie, kasseri and cream cheese, lying on a bed of deeply caramelised onions with balsamic vinegar.
There is not much I can say about this dish. Dipping a knife in, lifting a blob of gooey melted cheese, making sure some luscious caramelised onions come along for the ride, smothering a cracker with this golden blob, and popping it in your mouth in one bite. Are you imagining it? I have some in the fridge and it’s proving difficult to keep away from it, even though it’s ten in the morning. But also, it’s easy, and can be prepared a couple of days ahead, leaving only the baking for the last minute before serving. Convenient? Yes. And the caramelised onions can easily be replaced with a store-bought onion chutney if you are really pressed for time. At some point I think I’m going to try it with jam.
Grab a cracker.
