  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 sweet onions sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 package store-bought puf
  • f-pastry dough
  • 12 tablespoons grated Gruyère cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease the cavities of a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and sauté until tender and caramelized, 25 to 30 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and thyme.
  • Add the beef broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer until the liquid has reduced almost entirely. Stir in the heavy cream.
  • Roll out the puff-pastry dough a little to flatten it. Cut the dough into 2½-inch squares and then press a square into each of the cups of the prepared muffin tin.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of the onion filling into each cup and then top with 1 tablespoon grated Gruyère.
  • Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes. Serve immediately.
