Sauté the onions with 4 tablespoons of butter and a teaspoon of sugar over low heat for about 10 minutes until golden and caramelized.

When the onions are done, remove the skillet from the heat.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

You’ll need a package of puff pastry dough that is thawed but still cool. Take out a sheet, and cut it in 9 squares with a knife, like a tic-tac-toe board.

You’ll need about 3 ounces of gruyere cheese. You can shred it if you like, but just quickly cut it into some little pieces.

Place about a tablespoon of caramelized onions in the center of a dough square, top with a little bit of the cheese.

Pull up the corners and pinch them together into a little bundle.

Place the bundles in the cups of a mini muffin pan. Repeat the process with the other sheet of dough, making 18 little bundles. Bake these for 15 minutes.

  2. Oh my goodness these are the cutest little packages of yum. Great idea on the mini muffin pan, sometimes when I make recipes like this they open up by mistake, this is a cool technique to keep them all pretty.

  3. Oh my… I want your gruyer bites now! I hope my mum will bring us some gruyer from europe next week and I ll make some puff pastry. They still don’t sell those puff pastry sheets in my corner of the world but I am positive that the demand will be there soon. Thanks for sharing!
