I made this for a suprise birthday party and it was a huge hit. Super easy and all of the ingredient are usually kept on hand. I will make this again

Delicious! I cooked my onions slowly until they were Caramelized and added a dash of Dale's sauce. It's even better the next day if you can wait. It's worth the effort.

Love, love, love this. Have made it several times for several gatherings the last 3 months and it's devoured. I could easily eat the whole thing with a spoon and no remorse. Taste even better the next day, if any is left.
