DIRECTIONS

  • In a large size heavy skillet melt the butter and cook the onions over medium heat until soft, between 15 and 20 minutes, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon. You do NOT want the onions to be crunchy later.
  • Add flour, stirring, and cook about 1 minute.
  • Gradually stir in milk and cook 4 minutes; add cream, salt, and pepper.
  • Remove skillet from stove top and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Preheat oven to 400*F.
  • When oven is pre-heated, taste sauce and adjust with more salt and pepper to suit your taste preferences (I like to add quite a bit more pepper).
  • After taste adjustment, add 1 beaten egg to the cooled onion mixture and whisk thoroughly to combine.
  • Pour the onion sauce into a lightly sprayed pie dish.
  • Cover with layer of egg slices and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes-depends upon your oven.
  • Top with bacon crumbles.
  • Allow to set for 5 minutes so that it will set up and be easier to plate.
