Top Review by Denise in da Kitchen

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!
