With just a little bit of prep, this is a company-worthy dish, and one I will make again, especially in the Fall. It goes with Autumn tastes! With the onions and then the apple slices being caramelized, it looked wonderful, but then, with the addition of the apple brandy, the sauce took on a caramel-like glaze, and the smell and the look of it was pure heaven right there in the pan. We loved this! Thanks, lazyme, I will keep this in my file. YUM!
