You've had fried cheese sticks, and you've had jam. This recipe takes that combo to a whole other level, using fine brie and a homemade onion jam. The result is an amazing crunchy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside morsel that borders on the sublime. It's everything you love about the nutty flavor of soft cheese, but turned up to 11.

The onion jam accompaniment can also go on burgers or toast. One or two pieces are sure to go missing between counter and table.

  • 1/2 cup(s) red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup(s) balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat a 12" skillet or deep pan on over medium heat and place the Frywall into position.
  2. Add the butter and oil, then the onions. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are soft and translucent.
  3. Add the vinegar, sugar, and salt. Continue to reduce and stir for about

Deep Fried Brie Triangles

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound(s) brie or camembert cheese, cut into triangles
  • 3/4 cup(s) panko or other bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 small head of radicchio or your favorite bitter greens

Instructions

  1. Preheat about an inch of oil in a 12" skillet or pan to about 325° and place the Frywall so that it rests on the inner walls of the pan, not in the oil.
  2. Dredge each triangle of brie in flour, then the egg wash, then in the bread crumbs.
  3. Using tongs, carefully place the brie in the hot oil, four pieces at a time. After about two minutes, turn the brie over and fry until both sides are golden brown.
  4. Use the tongs to remove the brie and let rest for a minute on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve on a bed of radicchio with the onion jam or whatever fruit spread you enjoy with cheese.
