  • 2 1/4 pounds - beef liver, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons - butter or margarine
  • 1 - large onion, in 1/4-inch slices

  • 1 cups - milk
  • 2 - extra large eggs
  • 3 cups - fine dry breadcrumbs

    Soak liver in cold salty water for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Add onion slices and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt. Keep warm.
