    Cookgirl's Note:

    I wasted no time in posting this recipe from the latest issue of Bon Appetit magazine November 2005. Served over a bed of frisee, (or not), this would make an ideal appetizer for the Holidays.

      I made these for Thanksgiving and was not disappointed. I made some without shallots (personal preference) and some with and both turned out great. I did not make the salad to go with it. Thanks for the great appetizer!

      When I was known as Chef #203510, I promised to re and review this; but when I got home from the store I realized I'd bought a wrong ingredient, fresh cranberries instead of dried(!), and could not make it for the potluck. Sorry. Sometime soon, though!
