It was wonderful!!! I made a few substitutions, though. I used a small amount of dried oregano instead of the tarragon. I also used canola oil and a dash (or three) of butter-flavored popcorn salt instead of the butter. It was very easy to make. It went well past when it was supposed to be "done", but instead of getting squishy, it carmelized--an added bonus!

I didn't realize it, but the stuff I threw in the pan tonight was basically this recipe! I used chives rather than shallot, but this was it. I was going to post my recipe, and noticed this one in my "to try" cookbook. Very easy to make, and very tasty.
