Season the slices of calf’s liver with salt and pepper and then lightly coat with flour. Next heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the meat until golden brown. Meanwhile, slice the onion into rings. Once ready, remove the calf’s liver from the pan and then place somewhere to keep warm. Now fry the onion and the bacon in the remaining fat.

Serve with mashed potato or freshly baked bread and a salad, along with your choice of mustard, curry spiced ketchup, or piccalilli.
