Brie, Bacon & Onion Bowl

A few weeks ago I had seen a recipe for an appetizer,which I was immediately drawn to - Bacon & Brie ! Two of my favorites... I knew I wanted to make it soon, and pinned as well as printed the recipe immediately.

As life goes, I misplaced the print-out and could not find it on my Pinterest boards, it should be under my Appetizer board, but no.. it's not - I looked for a while, stopped and of course forgot about it.

When I looked through our finances file, yes the finances file! - the recipe was stuck in there... shows you what and how many things I am busy with at any given time of the day.  The little corner I use for blogging, crafting, doing finances, Roy's company quotes and a million other things looks like a disaster area- ALWAYS.

I do not use my desk or main PC much, because... the desk is full of stuff to be filed and the sewing machine is still there (for in case I quickly need to sew something - doesn't matter that it only takes minutes removing or replacing it in the correct storage ..), and to use the main PC for around 18 hours a day? That will be murder on my back and that is somehow the warmest room in the house !

Thing is: I found the recipe, but did not want to make it as an appetizer, but as a main dish.  The original recipe which I printed can be found on Amy's Cooking Adventures HERE but I have added much more to make it more filling, otherwise the recipe is basically the same.

A pic after I cut the loaf - just to make you more hungry for the recipe:

Brie, Bacon & Onion Bowl

1 Loaf makes 4 servings {add a salad or two for a main meal}

1 Oval or Round Bread  {I used an oval Portuguese bread}
2 TB Butter (+ a little for sauteeing the Onion and Mushrooms)
1 t Garlic Powder
1 Onion, chopped
250g Mushrooms, sliced
250g Bacon Bits
250g Brie Cheese, cold, rind removed
Parsley, chopped (optional)

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - line a baking sheet with baking paper
2.) Cut a piece out of the top of the Bread - remove most of the inside but leave a wall and bottom thickness of about 2.5 centimeters (one inch) - mix the Butter and Garlic Powder, use the back of a table spoon to spread the Butter on the inside and on the edges of the bread - put aside.
3.) Saute the Onion and Mushrooms in a small amount of Butter until soft and light brown - remove from pan and keep aside.
4.) Use the same pan and fry the Bacon Bits until crispy (drain if necessary)  - add the Onion & Mushrooms back and stir to combine.
5.) Spoon 1/3 of the Bacon mixture on the bottom of the hollowed out bread - place the Brie Cheese in the center on top of the Bacon mixture - add the remaining Bacon mixture over and to the sides of the cheese.
6.) Re-place the top piece of the bread and bake for 25 - 30 minutes.

Garnish with chopped Parsley and serve immediately with salads.

Hope you will enjoy!
