Brandied Calf Liver and Onions

READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by Patricia Manson

Liver had not been one of my favorites..however, after making this recipe, I changed my mind. The brandy and raisins give this dish that special taste. Also is an excellent source of iron.

What a nice entree! The brandy and raisins add just a touch of sweetness; a very nice addition to traditional liver with onions and bacon! Made for the L-O-V-E Train 2012.
