Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 inch springform pan very lightly with cooking spray. Fit pie crust into the bottom of pan and working it halfway up the sides of the pan. Try to get it an even thickness all over. Prick crust with fork in random spots to prevent bubbling of crust. Bake until lightly golden brown. (Do not let the crust get too brown or it will burn when you add filling and re-bake.)
When you remove the crust from the oven, reduce the oven temp to 300 degrees.
Mix the softened cream cheese, sour cream, cheeses, salt, cayenne pepper together and beat until smooth. Add eggs, flour and french fried onions..blend well. Pour into crust and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn oven off allow cheesecake to remain inside for an addtional 30 minutes. Do not open the oven door during this time. Remove from oven and spread with the sour cream.* NOTE* Top may not be smooth in appearance* Sprinkle bacon crumbles on top.
Before serving, remove the springform pans outer ring. This recipe serves 8-10 people. Refrigerate leftovers. This can be reheated and is just as tasty the second day.
