This spread was inspired by the idea of an affair between Middle Eastern hummus and French onion soup. Somewhere in between the two, this spread combines the flavor notes of that soup – sweet, soft, complex caramelized onion and bright thyme – with the blissfully creamy texture and slight twinge of tangy flavor that is hummus. They make quite the pair, really.
Brie on its own is fabulous but it is totally transformed when it is melted into this gooey dip. The addition of cream cheese and sour cream gives the dip a smooth texture. Cooked onions and garlic add a savory note that is contrasted with a little brown sugar and lemon juice. It smells so good while it is baking.
