Originally made with just bacon. Now, it usually contains onions and Gruyere cheese. A small wedge with a simple fruit salad and/or green salad makes a lovely lunch or light dinner.

Really good. I put the bacon/onion on top of the cheese, then added the cream/egg mixture. Used 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Dusted top with paprika. Took 45 minutes cooking time. Tasty treat! Good for leftovers, too.
