Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb fresh sliced mushrooms (white or crimini)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 large clove garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

  • 1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 wheel cold Brie cheese
  • 2 Tbs finely minced fresh parsley or chives (optional)

Directions

  • Finely chop mushrooms, onions, walnuts and garlic, thyme, rosemary and pepper in food processor.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushroom mixture for 5-7 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated. Stir in vinegar and cook 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature; cover and chill.
  • At serving time slice the wheel of Brie in half horizontally and place cut side up on oven -proof serving plate or baking pan. Spoon the topping evenly on cut surfaces of Brie.
