My husband and I love to entertain. I love brie, he loves mushrooms so I was trying to create a new recipe including both to share with our friends.

Everyone loves this recipe so I wanted to share it.

Ingredients

8 oz
baby brie
1
puff pastry sheet, thawed
8 oz
fresh sliced mushrooms
1/2 large
yellow onion, diced fine
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
2 Tbsp
butter, unsalted
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2 tsp
thyme leaves, chopped fine
2 tsp
rosemary sprigs, chopped fine
1/2 tsp
garlic pepper
1/2 tsp
lawry's seasoning salt
1/2 tsp
mrs dash original seasoning
1
egg, beaten (use for egg wash)
1
sourdough baguette bread
swanson's chicken broth

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Defrost puff pastry just until you are able unfold easily.
Sprinkle just enough flour on work surface so pastry doesn't stick

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Slice baguette of sourdough bread into thin slices.
2
Heat skillet, add olive oil and butter. Add onion, and saute until transparent. Add garlic, mix well. Continue cooking couple minutes.

Add the mushrooms making sure not to crowd pan while sauteing. Stir frequently so they cook evenly, add more butter if mixture is too dry.

Add seasonings, more or less according to your taste, and continue till mixture is softened and mushrooms are browned. Add just enough of Swanson's chicken broth to cover mixture. Continue until liquid is reduced and mixture is thickened and done. Remove from heat and cool.
3
Roll pastry out, just enough for brie to fit in center and pastry to wrap over it
Slice brie in half horizontally. Lay half (cut side up) the brie on pastry, place cooled mushroom mixture on top. Place 2nd half(cut side down) brie on top.

Cover with pastry, starting with opposite corners and wrap. Make like a bundle by twisting pieces of pastry; or turn over and decorate top with pieces of pastry.

Brush top and sides with egg wash. Place on ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate 30 minutes before baking to prevent cheese melting too much; it will still be soft and spreadable.

Bake @ 400 for 30 minutes, or until pastry is browned and cheese is soft.
