I don’t know about you but liver always causes controversy in my family. I like it and luckily my husband does too. My mum is not that keen. However when it comes to my in-laws the debate about whether or not to have liver for dinner becomes tense with my dad-in-law loving and my mum-in-law hating it. 🙂
Anyway, liver can be a very quick and easy dinner alternative that even adds to your daily iron intake. 😉

This recipe is one of the classics of Hungarian cuisine.
