These were great! It's so easy and my DH loved the bourbon flavored onion topping! Very different...I can see myself serving this to guests. I served this with a wild rice pilaf and green beans, but because the sauce is a tad on the sweet side, I think next time I'll have it with mashed potatoes instead of the wild rice. Thanks for sharing this new favorite!
