I learned this recipe for liver and bacon casserole years ago, and it really is a most wonderful dish - easy to prepare - cheap to buy the 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, liver and bacon 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

  • Fry the onion and bacon together in the oil for a few minutes to soften, then put in casserole dish.

Set aside.

  • Chop the liver into bite-sized pieces, and lightly coat in the seasoned flour.
  • Fry the liver for a few minutes until it has changed color, then remove to casserole to join the onions and bacon.

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.

  • Mix your stock with the remaining oil in the saucepan. This will have thickened a little with the flour to coated the liver in.
  • Bring up to boil, then add the tin of chopped tomatoes.
  • Add the Worcester sauce.
  • Mix well, then pour the mixture over the liver, onions and bacon in the casserole dish.
  • Put the lid on.
  • Place in a hot oven - 180C for 45 minutes.
  • Serve.

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

Liver seems to something that people either love or hate - no in between. Do you?

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.
