READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mightyro_cooking4u

This is the way my mother taught me to do liver and onions. I enjoy this with rice and grits. You can make your gravy as thick or thin as you like. I like mine kind of thick to coat the rice or grits.

This is an excellent way to prepare liver My family really enjoyed it this way. The gravy was great over mashed potatoes. Served with stewed tomatoes and it was one meal to remember for my family of liver lovers!
