Hands on time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Makes: 12-16 servings


  • 250 g bacon diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 (400g) round brie cheese

Method of preparation

In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, stirring often until crisp. Using slotted spoon, move bacon to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Discard all but 1 tbsp of fat from pan. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened and browned, about 10-12 minutes. Add sugar, vinegar, thyme and soy and continue to cook, stirring, until liquid reduces, about 3-5 minutes. Stir bacon back into mixture. Continue to cook, stirring, until no liquid remains, about 1-2 more minutes.

To Serve: Preheat oven to 350F (176F). Place brie in cake pan, pie pan or brie baker. Bake until warmed in middle, about 10-15 minutes. Top with Bacon Jam and serve with toasted sourdough, crackers or kettle chips.
