I liked the ease of this recipe. :) Good flavor too!:) I did make a substitution though, but only because I wanted to use some leftover beef and broth I had from the night before. I left out the brown sugar,& heavy cream and included the beef/broth mixture. Yummm!! Thanks Tootsie for a great recipe!!:)

This was a nice recipe. I made a few adjustments, as I am all about ease! :) I put 2T butter into a 9x13 pan, then added the onions, and placed it in the 350 oven until melted. Next I pulled the pan out, added all other ingredients, stirred well and put back into the oven for 60 minutes. Voila - easy & quick - and super results! Took some to my mom's house and she LOVED it - I thought it was 'good' - so we're goin' 4 stars to appease us both. :) Thanks for sharing!
