Liver and Onions

Linda Griffith Recipe

By Linda Griffith sothernladee

This recipe is probably not going to win me any blue ribbons, but this is a wonderful recipe for anyone who loves liver...I use calves liver, because it is not as bitter and is tender. Smother the top with a good Vidalia onion and you got it made. Hope you enjoy this wonderful southern dish

    Linda, I fixed liver and onions for my husband last night. He loves it. I was gone today and asked him what he had for lunch and he said the left over liver/onions. I'm going to try your recipe next time. I just do the cornmeal and fry. Yours sounds really good. I put the recipe in our family cookbook and all the g-kids asked "why"?
