I know that a lot of people don't care for liver and I have to admit we go through spurts on having it. But when we do, this is our favorite recipe.

WOW!! This was so good. I don't know how you did it, but they tasted just like what my grandma used to fix. I did have to add more fat to the liver while it was frying. My bacon didn't make enough. Thanks so much for posting. I now have a new liver & onion recipe. Made for Photo Tag.
