"This was my dad's way of making sure we got our weekly dose of liver. It's one of those 'by guess and by golly' recipes that he never wrote down. Most of the time he added it to soup, but once in a while he ladled it over noodles and fried onions." — JEANIE BEAN

fresh bread crumbs
ground black pepper to taste
boiling beef broth
Personally, I don't like liver dunplings, but my family loves them. They all raved about these, but I altered the recipe slightly. I soaked about 4 small day old white bread dinner rolls in some milk (just enough to cover the rolls), until the rolls absored all the milk. I added the milk soaked rolls (but not any excess milk) to the liver dumpling mixture. I also added some more bread crumbs to make the dumpling mixture a little easier to form the balls. These were a huge hit. They were devoured.
I liked this recipe, but found it a bit bland. I added 1 finely chopped onion, and 2 T. of oregano, as well as doubling the salt. I then cooked it in broth...
My husband liked this recipe. I made the mixture, and half I boiled and then fried, and the other half I just made into the little patties and simply shallow fried. The simply fried ones were better. I added cayenne pepper to the recipe. I will make this again, it was so easy.
After reading the reviews I modified this recipe adding 1 medium diced oinion, extra salt and seasoning.
At the advice of RATKIN412's review I dropped these by spoon in to a well greased pan and fried them like patties.
Our son who absolutely hates liver and will not eat it no matter how I disguise it, had thirds. It was a hit!
I served it with a side of mustard to dip it in. The kids loved it!
I will definately make these again!
Usually I can't stand liver, but this recipe made it taste great! Thanks!
add 1/2 tsp dried marjoram, 1 onion + 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsely sauteed then added to mixture. Add into liver dumpling mix 1 clove crushed garlic. Perfect in clear beef broth. Wet hands and drop dumplings into boiling soup instead of wet spoons.
Liver was one of my favourites as a child, and this way of cooking it was very enjoyable. My mum makes great Liver (traditional with bacon and onions), and I've tried to emulate it, but usually end up overcooking it. NOT a problem with this recipe - easy to make and very enjoyable, you never know maybe my husband will enjoy it!
Make your dumplings very small if you don't want a strong livery flavor. Use very good broth, like homemade veal broth, if you want to impart something tasty to this dish.
