We are liver lovers and this was so different than the way we usually have liver that I was excited to try it. It was delicious! I served it with mashed potatoes and stewed tomatoes and zucchini. My husband and I both loved it!

If you like liver you will love it! Wow, I can't believe how much I liked this. I halved the recipe as I was making it for just two, and we ate it all! I served garlic mashed potatoes and a mix of peas and mushrooms for a side. It will be repeated!
