Ingredients

  • 2

    tsp. butter

  • 1

    tsp. olive or vegetable oil

  • 2

    onions (about 1 pound), halved and thinly sliced (I used sweet onions but you can also use Spanish)

  • ¼

    tsp. sugar

  • ¼

    tsp. sea salt

  • 1

    tbs. apple cider or sherry vinegar

  • ½

    tsp minced fresh thyme

  • 3

    applewood-smoked bacon strips

  • ¾

    cup (3 ounces) shredded Gruyere cheese

  • ½

    cup sour cream

  • ½

    cup mayonnaise

  • ¼

    tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, sugar, and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes or until onions soften and just begin to turn golden. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring often, 20 minutes or until onions turn deep golden brown. Stir in vinegar, scraping bottom of skillet to deglaze pan. Cook, stirring often, until vinegar is reduced by half. Stir in thyme. Pour onions onto a plate and set aside. 2. Cook bacon in a large skillet (I just used the same skillet from the onions to cut down on another pot to wash) over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towels; finely crumble. 3. Combine cheese and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir in onions and bacon. Spray a 2-cup baking dish with cooking spray and transfer mixture into dish. 4. Bake 15- 20 minutes or until mixture bubbles and top is lightly golden.
