Southern Style Smothered Liver and Onions

Heather McDaniel-Adair


I don't eat liver and onions too often, but if I'm going to, it's going to be this recipe. It's good ol' southern cookin' I grew up w/. I don't serve it w/ anything else, but I'm sure okra, greens, cornbread, or any other southern classic would go nicely.
