Made this tonight. I somehow managed to leave out the brandy- not sure how, but in the end I forgot to put it in. Even without the brandy it was amazing. Everyone loved it and we saved the sauce to put on toast later!krzykt in Glendale loved it
I like this. We do a method very similar to this for pheasant/quail only we use a roux as a thickener instead of cheese. Thanks for sharing...;-)~ Jimjimrug1 in Peoria loved it
