Ingredients

  • 4 bacon strips
  • 2 sweet onions halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1/4 teaspoon tabasco
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere Cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Crumble.
  • Add onions, sugar, and salt to bacon fat in the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until onions turn a deep golden brown color. This can take as long as 20 minutes. If onions start to burn, turn heat down to medium-low.
  • Add sherry and cook 1 minute. Stir in thyme and tabasco. Remove from heat.
  • Mix together sour cream and mayo in a medium bowl. Add crumbled bacon, cheese, onion mixture, and black pepper. Mix together well and transfer to a 2-cup baking dish.
  • Bake 20 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown on top.
