Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook bacon, stirring occasionally, until the pieces start to brown (4 to 5 minutes).
  3. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crispy and the onions are lightly browned (5 to 7 minutes). With a slotted spoon, transfer mixture to a plate; let cool slightly.
  4. While the bacon/onion mixture is cooking, unroll puff pastry to 10-inch square and place in an 8-inch square baking pan. (You might need to fold the corners to fit.) Prick bottom of dough with a fork.
  5. Spread the bacon/onion mixture over pastry.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, cream, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  7. Pour egg mixture over the bacon/onion mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake until filling is set and top is golden (about 40 minutes).
