You are going to just love these Mini Brie Bites with Onion Jam. They’re cute, easy to handle, bite into, and serve at a party. Each bite features a mini-size portion of creamy brie, wrapped in a flaky crescent roll and adorned with a little dollop of onion jam. That’s it. Bake and serve just like that – guests will absolutely be impressed.
Mini Brie Bites with Onion Jam
For me, one of the best things about the Holiday season is enjoying ALL the food.
I am not an overly social person at the best of times, preferring to snuggle on the sofa and read a good book over going out and talking to real people.
But for approximately one month of the year that all changes.
I become a little miss social, make ALL the food, and have ALL the people come over to enjoy it with me.
What Do I Need For Mini Brie Bites with Onion Jam
I have a few tried and true hacks to make entertaining less stressful.
One of them is using pre-made crescent rolls (croissant dough) or puff pastry when I whip up some mini appetizers.
It makes prep time for entertaining so much quicker and easier.
TIP: Be sure to check the ingredients. Not all pre-made dough/pastry is created equal, and you don't want to be buying something full of nasties.
Crescent rolls or croissant dough can be a lot harder to find outside of the US, so as a replacement use some puff pastry. It will be less fluffy, and more crunchy, but will work just as well.
Another hack: Onion Jam.
This stuff is amazing.
In Australia, I buy a delicious blend from Beerenberg (they call it caramelized onion, but it has more of a jam consistency so I am sticking with jam).
If you haven't bought onion jam/caramelized onion before, it can usually be found in the same aisle that you would find other savory sauces and pickles.
If you can't find any and you have some extra time, then go on ahead and make your own: Balsamic Caramelized Onion.
How To Make Mini Brie Bites with Onion Jam
Mini Brie Bites with Onion Jam are so easy to whip up.
- roll out the crescent roll dough (or puff pastry), making sure to press the seams together,
- cut 24 little squares and pop them into a mini muffin tin,
- into this, you add a little square of creamy brie,
- a dollop of onion jam or caramelized onion and a sprinkle of fresh thyme,
- pop in the oven and hey presto you have a great little bite to enjoy with those last-minute guests!
If you like to be prepared: make up the mini brie bites in the mini muffin tin and pop them back into the fridge until your guests arrive. When ready, simply pop them into the oven and serve when done.

Well good grief, gluten free crescent rolls! I'm going to try this one!
Haha I know right!
These look so good! Everyone loves brie at a party, but a baked brie can get so messy and hard to eat one handed. These brie bites totally solve that problem!
