  • If necessary, trim off any tubes or connective tissue from liver. Cut into slices 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick, then cut slices into 1/2 - 3/4 inch dice. Put in a small bowl and cover with milk or wine.
  • Slice onions, thick or thin, as preferred.
  • In a large heavy skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove from pan, leaving drippings in pan.
  • Add onions to pan, salt and pepper lightly and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, 10 - 15 minutes. Remove onions to serving platter and keep warm.
  • Drain liver; pat or shake in a strainer to remove as much moisture as possible.
  • Add butter or olive oil to skillet and raise heat to medium-high. When hot, add liver, salt and pepper lightly and cook, stirring after a minute or two to turn pieces over. Cook for another minute or two, until thickest pieces are just barely pink. Don't overcook!
  • Spoon liver over onions, crumble bacon on top and serve immediately.

"Looks good. Nice colorful touch with the green onions instead of the regular. Red onions with the green might look good."
