I know, I know, some of you can't tolerate liver but for those of us that love it try this recipe! The liver comes out crisp and has a wonderful flavor with just a hint of lemon. Even kids have been known to like it. Substitute Chicken livers if you wish.

We love liver and this was a very nice change from the ordinary. I would have never thought of lemon. Thanks

Got into a thread yesterday, talking about liver and knew we wouldn't be happy till we had it again!! Went to search and found Your Lemon liver Bergy, so of course had to try it. It was wonderfull, satisfied our craving!! the only change I made was to cut the bacon to 4 slices. This is a great way to make liver, we liked the touch of lemon and will certainly make it again!! Thanks Bergy!
