Baked Brie with Blueberry Shallot Relish

1 large shallot, finely sliced
1 tbs olive oil
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup red wine
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup sugar

In a small pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallot and “sweat” until softened. Add berries, wine, vinegar and sugar. Bring to a simmer.

Strain out berries and onions, reserving the liquid. Return liquid to pot and reduce down to a syrupy consistency (about 10 minutes). Add berries and onions back into liquid. Cool and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the baked brie:
Place a whole 125g wheel of brie in a brie baker or on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place into a 350F oven for about 30 minutes, until cheese is gently warmed and softened. Serve with a pot of the blueberry relish and slices of baguette.
