The red onion marmalade takes some time to cook down, but I promise it's worth the time (mixed with a few other ingredients) to get that super condensed, caramelized onion flavor!
If you can't make the marmalade a day in advance, or you simply don't have the patience to wait for it to simmer; caramelizing red onion in butter until soft, translucent and fragrant makes a suitable substitute.
Either way...the sweet, intense flavor of the onion pairs beautifully with an earthy, creamy brie. As always, the higher quality brie you use, the better the sandwich will taste....
But I guess that last point goes without saying.
But I said it anyway...
Because I can't help myself...I love talking about brie.
In fact, if I have another baby and it's a girl, I may name her Brie.
Or Olive...I love Olives too.
Rosemary's cute...but then I think about the movie "Rosemary's Baby" and I'm not so sure?
But anyway...make this sandwich because even if you spend 30 minutes photographing it (to get the 'perfect shot') it's equally delicious at room temperature.
