Brie cheese topped with haskap berries, bacon and vinegar


500 g Brie Cheese or 2 smaller wheels
4 slices Bacon (see note)
2 tbsp Minced Red onion or sweet onion
1 cup Frozen Haskap Berries 
3 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
Crackers, toasted baguette, apples, etc., for serving.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place brie round on baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut into the rind on the top of the brie about a quarter inch from the edge. Do not remove the rind.
  3. Bake 15 minutes, or until cheese is soft and melted.
  4. While the Brie is baking, in a skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from the pan and place on paper towels. Leave about 1 tbsp of the bacon grease in the pan. Once cooled somewhat, chop into about ½ inch/ 1 cm pieces.
  5. Reduce heat to medium low, add onion and sauté for 1-2 minutes or until translucent.
  6. Add the frozen haskap berries, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and cinnamon to the pan, stir and bring to a simmer.
  7. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 8-10 minutes until the liquid is reduced and the mixture is thickened.
  8. Remove from heat and stir in the bacon.
  9. Move the hot brie to a serving plate. Carefully remove the top rind using a sharp knife to separate it, if needed.
  10. Top brie with haskap berry mixture and serve with crackers, toasted baguette, apple, etc.

Note: For a vegetarian version, skip the bacon and use 1 tablespoon of olive oil to make the topping.
