adapted from Cooking Light

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 3 1/2 cups sliced onion
  • 2 1/2 oz Gruy√®re cheese, shredded and divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (I used light)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • baguette slices, chips or veggies, for serving

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 F. Spray a 1 quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease.

Set the pan back over medium heat, and add the onions. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a rich caramel color and have cooked down considerably. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Crumble the bacon – reserve a small amount to garnish the spread. In a medium bowl, stir together the rest of the bacon, the onions, 2 oz of the cheese, 1 tablespoon of the chives, the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt and pepper.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining 1/2 oz of cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese has browned and the spread is bubbling around the edges. Garnish with the remaining tablespoon of chives and the reserved bacon. Serve with baguette slices, chips or veggies.
