I learned this recipe for liver and bacon casserole years ago, and it really is a most wonderful dish because it's easy to prepare, has cheap ingredients, and the kids love it.

It's a great way to get them to eat liver if they are a bit fussy.

Being a very cheap family meal means that if you are living on a budget, this casserole could easily become a staple, knowing that your kids are getting plenty of iron and vitamins A and C, as well as protein and zinc.

What you'll need is:

  • 1lb liver - lamb is tender, but beef or pig's liver have more flavor
  • 4oz bacon, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 14oz tin of chopped tomatoes
  • a little bit of oil for frying
  • some seasoned flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
  • ½ pint stock - ham stock is best

How to cook liver and bacon casserole

  1. Fry the onion and bacon together in the oil for a few minutes to soften, and then put in casserole dish.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Chop the liver into bite-sized pieces, and lightly coat in the seasoned flour.
  4. Fry the liver for a few minutes until it has changed color; then remove to casserole to join the onions and bacon.
  5. You can add a little more flour at this stage if you like, but it's not strictly necessary. Gently cook the flour in the oil.
  6. Mix your stock with the remaining oil in the saucepan. This will have thickened a little.
  7. Bring up to boil, and then add the tin of chopped tomatoes.
  8. Add the Worcester sauce.
  9. Mix well, then pour the mixture over the liver, onion, and bacon in the casserole dish.
  10. Put the lid on.
  11. Place in a hot oven at 180C for 45 minutes.
  12. Serve.

This casserole is delicious served with boiled potatoes and a green vegetable.

        Wonderfully simple recipe. Have not had liver for some years but will now become a regular item on our home menu.

        Do you really think that the haters would even come to this page for the recipe when they hate it :-) Let alone vote!!

        I am just doing a dish for some of my archery mates tomorrow, who all love it, as I do, but have partners who don't.

        One of them suggested to soak it it milk overnight which I will do. There is also an argument about whether to skin the liver or not. I believe it helps keep the shape of the thin slices I do. I don't he does but he is going to get it my way. Also you have made no mention about soaking the liver in water to remove all the blood and gunk or cutting out the pipes and gristle.

        Almost all prepared now. I know that they will love it.

        Absolutely, just serve it up and keep shtumm. They might notice half way through but by then they will be enjoying it so much they may well finish the plate and ask for more. My current partner is worse than the kids - he is so fussy. But I made this dish and he loved it until he realised it was liver. Then he said no to future servings but he ate it all at the time, and enjoyed it! Now I just make it to annoy him, lol, it's eat it or go hungry, just like the kids.
