Caramelized Onions with melted Gruyere cheese inside a bite of crispy puffed pastry are a delightful addition to your party spread.
To begin, slice two yellow onions very thinly.
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.
Look at these little beauties!
Serve them warm or at room temperature.

Caramelized onions and cheese in a puff pastry? I’m in!
These bites look amazingly delicious :) Love them – thank you so much for hosting today’s event.
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.
What a great idea for an appetizer! I love Gruyere cheese, and they look so pretty as well. Thanks for sharing!
Gorgeous flavor combo!! Thanks you so much for hosting!!
Yum! I’d happily gobble up a whole plate of these!
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!
I wonder if I sautéed the onion in Olive Oil, and left out the cheese….how they would taste as a lactose free option…
OMG…I always have a package of puff pastry in my freezer and onions in my kitchen. Think I could whip some of these up with my leftover manchego from recipe in place of the gruyere?
I love how easy this recipe is and something different to offer guests. My husband may want me to throw in some meat, but, for me, these are perfect little bites. Just pinned this and cannot wait to try it. Putting some puff pastry on my shopping list.
Oh my goodness. I need these in a bad way. Wow. So delicious!
So cute and I am loving the onions and gryere in it! What a great appetizer, perfect for Football season!
I love everything about these. Knowing my love for caramelised onions and cheese I doubt I would have very good self-control with these around.
These sound really easy to make!! It’s the perfect bite size snack
I just love everything about this little bites or more like pouches of deliciousness! Thanks for being such a great host this week!
What a fabulous little treat! Beautiful display when entertaining too.
I’m pretty sure I could eat a dozen of these, yea, at least a dozen. Then hide the rest so I could eat them later.
LOL, I saved a few – and they’re pretty good with morning coffee ;)
Holy Cow! These look incredible!!! PINNING!
