Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup diced sweet onion
  • 1 leek the white part only, cleaned well, cut in half then sliced into half-moons
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter or ghee
  • 4 thick slices applewood smoked bacon or your fav kind of bacon
  • ½ cup grated swiss cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 6 eggs preferably farmed fresh, or backyard chicken
  • 1 cup half and half cream, milk or combo
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Instructions
 

  • Heat a saute pan over medium heat; add the oil and butter, once the butter is melted, add the onions and leek along with a pinch of salt. Saute, stirring often until the onions begin to turn brown around the edges. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • While the onions and leek are cooking, cook the bacon until crisp, either in a pan, the oven, or microwave. If using the microwave method, place a layer of 4 thick paper towels on a plate, place the bacon evenly in the middle, then cover with another layer of paper towels. Place in the microwave and cook, for 4 minutes. Check for doneness; continue to cook 30-second intervals until cooked crisp. Remove, using caution, the plate will be hot. Remove the bacon from the paper towels and allow them to cool; chop coarsely with a knife. Set - aside.
  • While everything else is working, grate and crumble the cheese. Place the eggs in a blender or bowl and either blend or whisk them until well blended. Add salt, pepper, and the cream. Mix well.
  • Heat the oven to 350°F.
    Spray the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray or lightly butter. Starting with the cheese, cover the bottom of the dish, top with the caramelized onion/leeks mixture, spreading them evenly over the cheese, then sprinkle the bacon over. Slowly pour the egg/cream mixture over all; place in the middle of the oven and cook for 40 minutes or until the center has set. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 5 - 10 minutes before cutting and enjoying.
