Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Delicious anytime, this makes an especially nice holiday appetizer because of the reds and greens. You can make the onion topping up to 24 hours ahead of time, refrigerate and reheat before spooning over the Brie.
  • tip 2
    *Spreads with at least 65% vegetable oil can be used.
