On Christmas morning we are usually eating brunch and then having our dinner later in the day. I love brunch but unless we go out, we hardly ever make it at home. Our son is the brunch cook! He makes omelets to order...bless him. He doesn't go to bed until he has chopped and prepped for the next day. And he has gotten to the stage in his life where he finally cleans up too! I found this recipe and I thought it would be a great brunch item . I might even make it! (Although I do have a fun drink that I am making that I am posting later on in the week!) This will be lighter than bagels and more fun than plain toast. It is different and filled with yummy flavors and I think it would also make a very good appetizer.
Heat 2 Tbsp butter over medium-high heat. Add one thinly sliced Vidalia onion. Cook 20 minutes, stirring until onions are browned and caramelized.
Add 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme leaves and 1/4 tsp. salt.
Unfold 1 sheet puff pastry onto greased nonstick baking sheet and prick with a fork.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Spread onions over pastry, then top with 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven, cut into squares and serve.
