  • Total Time 30 min
  • Serves: 16

Ingredients

  • 7 oz Compliments Double Cream Brie, cubed (including rind) 200 g
  • ¾ cup plain brick-style cream cheese, cubed 175 mL
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour 30 mL
  • 1 tbsp butter 15 mL
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 1 cup lager-style beer 250 mL
  • several dashes hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley 15 mL
  • sprinkle of smoked paprika

Directions

  • Step 1

    In bowl, toss Brie and cream cheese with flour to coat. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Place 8 or 10 in. (20 or 25 cm) cast-iron skillet on grill preheated to medium. Add butter. Stir in onion, garlic and salt; cook until onion is softened but not browned, about 2 min. Pour in beer; bring to a simmer (avoid rapid boil).

  • Step 3

    Add cheese mixture to skillet in 3 portions, mixing to melt each addition before adding next. Don’t worry if some small lumps remain. Stir in hot sauce, if using. Move skillet to indirect heat or off the grill. Garnish with parsley and smoked paprika. Serve with grilled plain or garlic bread for dipping.

Tip

Alternatively, make dip on stovetop on medium heat.

Use leftover dip as a sauce on chicken, grilled veggies. Or toss with hot pasta.
