making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Caramelized Onion Brie en Croute
1 medium yellow or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 8-ounce wheel of Brie cheese
1 sheet store-bought frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg
Place onions and oil in a skillet and cover. Cook on medium-low heat until onions are very soft. Add a few teaspoons of water when needed to prevent the onions from burning or sticking. Once the onions are very soft, add sugar, increase heat to medium and cook, while stirring, until onions are browned. Unwrap puff pastry, pour onion mixture onto middle of pastry, roughly in a circle the size of the Brie. Place Brie on top of onion mixture, brush egg mixture around edges of pastry then fold over Brie, fully enclosing it. Turn pastry-covered Brie over onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush entire top and sides of pastry with egg wash. Bake in a preheated 400 F oven for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let Brie rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with crackers or slices of baguette.

This elegant party appetizer is actually surprisingly easy to make and it's always a hit! We've kept our version of this recipe simple but some dried cranberries or raisins can be added to the caramelized onion mixture for a bit of added sweetness. This recipe can easily be doubled.
