I have one regret about this dish. I only made enough for two. Next time I will make the whole recipe so I can have leftovers! I loved the apple-caraway combination (must be the Norwegian in me). This goes together easily and taste wonderful. Served with Rutmus and buttered carrots. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
