    MizzNezz's Note:

    I think this dish has an undeserved reputation. When it's cooked up nice and crisp it's really wonderful. I had kids eating this like crazy, because I didn't tell them what it was!

      Wonderful! So easy and quick to prepare and so delicious. I only made slight alterations. First I soaked the calves liver in milk - why - because my Mother said so - she's almost 90 and I'm not about to argue. I then followed your recipe. Besides the onions I added bacon like it has come served in some restaurants when I've ordered it out. I served it with creamed spinach and baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, bacon bits, and a little shredded cheese. I think calves liver gets a bum rap probably because the name prohibits people from trying it. It's great folks - give it a chance. Thanks for the recipe, now I can make it at home.

      Delicious and very easy! Our grocery doesn't carry calves liver, so used beef liver - it was wonderful. Also good now that the sweet Texas 1015 onions are in season!

      This recipe is also great if you make a gravy to put over the liver and onions.
