Servings 6 people


  • Chef's knife

  • Muffin tin
  • Sauté pan


  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • 6 ounces brie cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 frozen puff pastry box


  • Slice the onions. Melt the butter in a sauté pan on medium-low. Add the onions and cook for about 15 minutes until they are carmelized.

  • Cut the brie cheese into 12 equal pieces and place one on top of each puff pasty.
  • Spoon the onions on top of the cheese. Sprinkle each with a small amount of thyme.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastry puffs and the cheese softens.


If the onions begin to burn, place a piece of aluminum foil over the top.
