"I used chicken livers. Sauteed bacon.. drained, sauteed peppers and onions.... drained. Fried chicken livers in seasoned flour.... did not make gravey or use cornstarch, broth or soy sauce..... drained finished livers. Plated with potato cakes... fresh green beans and garnished with the peppers and onions... We found it wonderful.....Mother Malone  -  Woodleaf,  NC
