Outstanding company food! Unique. I cut this in half, made as posted, and divided it between 2 ramekins. I love curry and there is just a bare hint of it and the apricot is also nice. Thank you for posting. Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y.
Delicious and decadent. This is a nice way to dress up ordinary veggies. Nice presentation for the buffet at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I have made this twice. The first time I made it exactly as written. The next time I added orange marmelade and 1 t orange zest. With the orange flavor, it makes it a more festive side. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe!
