      loved this side dish. would never have thought to put the two together. didn't need the brown sugar, my onion was sweet and i used a Gala apple. i also didn't have bacon to crumble but had bacon grease to fry in, next time i will have some to crumble over, i think it will make an already wonderful dish even better.

      I loved the combination of the apples and the onions -- but I deviated a bit and left out the bacon bits. Now I think it would've been so much better! I still fried in bacon fat, and served it with steak. It was a much healthier alternative to, say, mashed potatoes!

      This was a great accompaniment to a rolled pork loin roast. I used brown sugar as my apples were a bit tart, as suggested. This is a keeper, thank you:)
