    In 10-inch ovenproof skillet, heat 1 teaspoon butter and the oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Cook onions in butter mixture 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until soft. Add pancetta; cook until crisp. Drain all but 1 tablespoon drippings from skillet; add 2 tablespoons butter to skillet.

    In medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper with fork or wire whisk until well mixed; pour over pancetta mixture in hot skillet. Sprinkle 1/2 cup goat cheese over egg mixture. As mixture begins to set at bottom and side, gently lift cooked portions with spatula so that thin, uncooked portion can flow to bottom. Avoid constant stirring. Cook 3 minutes or until eggs are thickened but still moist; remove from heat. Sprinkle remaining goat cheese and the Parmesan cheese over top of egg mixture.
