At the first christmas party of the season, many appetizers were eaten, but this one was wiped clean! Excellent and it smelled great! I halved the applesauce, brown sugar and the onion and it was still great!

I thought this was very good !! The brown sugar, applesauce, made a nice, thick, sauce. I liked the onion flavor also. Very easy !!
