Liver Dumplings

Liver Dumplings


"This was my dad's way of making sure we got our weekly dose of liver. It's one of those 'by guess and by golly' recipes that he never wrote down. Most of the time he added it to soup, but once in a while he ladled it over noodles and fried onions."

Usually I can't stand liver, but this recipe made it taste great! Thanks!

Make your dumplings very small if you don't want a strong livery flavor. Use very good broth, like homemade veal broth, if you want to impart something tasty to this dish.

Liver was one of my favourites as a child, and this way of cooking it was very enjoyable. My mum makes great Liver (traditional with bacon and onions), and I've tried to emulate it, but usually...
