I seriously can’t get enough of these mushroom brie bites. They are absolutely delicious. They are perfect to serve at your next cocktail party. Bryce Gruber is a huge fan, too.
1 sheet of puff pastry dough, cut into 12 squares
12 slices of wild mushroom brie cheese (we got ours from TJs but regular brie is fine too)
½ a small onion
½ Tbsp butter
1 finely sliced green onion
freshly cracked black pepper
Be sure the puff pastry is chilled, but not frozen. Cut the pastry into 12 equal squares. Spray a mini muffin pan with nonstick spray and gently place one pastry square into each of the 12 molds, to fit the circular shape. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, until the pastry is puffy and light golden brown. Slice the onion, thinly, and add to a small sauté pan with butter and cook on low heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cut 12 slices of the brie cheese and place one in each of the pastry cups; do not overfill with cheese, otherwise it will end up melting all over the place. Put back into the oven on the middle rack, and bake for 5 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Top each brie cup with caramelized onion, a pinch of green onion, and a dash of freshly cracked black pepper.
