  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
  • 2 small red onions, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 pound brie cheese, chilled, rind cut off, cheese cubed (about 2 cups)

Add vinegar and thyme and cook until all liquid evaporates, about 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool onion mixture.
