This recipe is so tasty. A bit of a cheat day recipe since it has quite a lot of cheese and bacon, but boy oh boy, is it worth it. I was inspired by a meal at Leon Le Cochon and couldn’t resist trying it out at home!

You’ll need:
Some lardons (and some pancetta if you can get your hands on some)
1 white onion
A good splash of balsamic vinegar
2/3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp light brown sugar
A hunk (technical term) of brie, aka as much as you fancy eating
Some olives
Some bread for serving.
Chop your onion into nice thing slices, then pop them in a medium hot frying pan with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and sugar.

Decide how much brie you want, and chop it into equally sized chunks.

Keep stirring the onions until they’re nice and carmelised and piping hot. They should look something like this…

Just before they reach this stage pop the lardons in to get nice and crispy. It’s great to cook them in the same pan as the onions so they absorb some of the flavour.

Pop your onions onto a lined baking sheet with the olives and lardons, then layer the brie on the top.

Just look at that steam ^^!

Place the tray under the grill for about 5 minutes until the brie has melted slightly and is oozing deliciousness everywhere.

Serve with a big hunk of fresh french bread.

It really is that simple! So tasty, a real treat, and really quite brie-licious. Sorry, I had to make at least one cheese joke – at least I kept it till the end!

But seriously, this is so good – I highly recommend you make it!
