  3. Cook over medium high heat until translucent and golden brown.
  4. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  5. Add butter to skillet.
  6. Heat until melted.
  7. Add liver pieces.
  8. Over medium heat, fry liver until just done - 3 minutes on each side.
  9. Alternatively, liver can be brushed with butter and broiled.
  10. To test for doneness, cut a piece from liver slice.

  15. Set aside.

ooo so simple and soo good but..I must admit i used two eggs...and by the way it is MUCH easier to just grate the eggs using a veggie grater with small holes. Also added ground black pepper.
