I cut this recipe back to one generous serving and it worked very well. The bacon sure does the trick along with the spices. I love liver but can only have it every so often because I am prone to Uric acid build-up. So when I do have it I want to be sure it is a good recipe - this is a good recipe! I also did a batch of fried mushrooms with it and served it with potatoes, asparagus and new little carrots. Thanks Evangelia
