Thank you for this recipe it worked great. I made a few changes by adding bacon and more onions to it, and some sugar to caramelize the onions. Came out pretty good and yummy.
This was a fantastic dinner idea!! The liver was very tender and mild flavored. I did soak the liver in milk for about 3 hours. This is by far one of my favorite liver recipes.
I have cooked liver many times this way, as I grew up loving liver and onions. Sometimes I soak liver in milk overnight and get best liver ever. It's always a big hit and no leftovers!
