Made this last night for Christmas Eve munchies and loved it. Very tasty and easy. I added some mushrooms (Baby Bella) while sautéing and my husband and I enjoyed immensely.

I recommend soaking the livers in milk overnight. (of course drain and wash them before frying)I did not use bacon, or the butter/chives topping. I've even made this with onion/garlic powder and it was fine. A little extra Brandy doesn't hurt either. The texture is smooth and rich. It is a holiday tradition at our house.
