Bonfire Baked Brie

It’s almost summer! Get ready for a summer of eating well on outdoor adventures with a simple bonfire snack that feels like a nibble straight from a posh cocktail party. Any leftovers you have could go into an omelette the next day or be made into a quick fireside grilled cheese.


  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tsp sugar
  • 1 small whole brie (125 grams is a good size for 2 people), sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 onion, sliced into thick segments (you’re going to use only one segment)
  • Bread for serving


  1. Place the butter onto the center of a piece of foil, top with sugar, followed by onion segment. Wrap tightly and place near the fire. Flip the onion every minute or so, unwrapping to check the onion after four minutes. When onion has browned, remove it from the fire.
  2. Place half of the sliced brie in the center of a new piece of foil. Place the onion and any accumulated juices onto the brie and top with the remaining half. Wrap the brie in two layers of foil and place as near the fire as you can manage without it being in the flames. Flip the brie every minute or two. Depending on the size of the brie, it should be fully melted in 5-8 minutes. Serve with crusty bread (serves two).


Ready to go!
