As you know by now I am all about ease when preparing our family meals. Like a lot of families, time can be against us with our busy lifestyle. I am sharing with you my quick and easy meals, and also sharing my cheats along the way.
I know a lot of you will probably not read on for liver and bacon, I can not stand liver. Even preparing it I have to use tongs as I do not like touching it. I also know that it is not really comfort food weather, but it is always nice to have a selection of recipes to go to.
Before we go on, I will explain how my family have liver and bacon. My husband is the only one of us who likes liver, he has liver and bacon. I also add sausages and I have sausage and bacon and C has sausages.
2 x Beef Oxo cube
Bisto Reduced Salt Gravy Granules
In a bowl add enough flour to coat the liver and season.
Coat the liver in the flour (the amount of liver you use really does depend on the person and their meal sizes)
In a heavy bottom dish heat the oil
Add liver and cook on each side – remove to one side
Add Sausages and cook – remove to one side
Add bacon and cook – remove to one side
Add the onion (I always use frozen chopped onions) and fry until soft.
Add the liver, sausages and bacon to the onions and add the crushed oxo cubes.
Pour in boiling water and stir through
Add a lid and simmer on a low heat
While the liver and bacon is simmering I prepare my potatoes as always serve with mashed potatoes.
Remove the liver and bacon from the heat
I usually dish up the meat and then thicken the gravy with the gravy granules and pour over the meat and mash.
As much as i do not like liver, both myself and C love the gravy it makes. Sausages and mash is one of her favourite meals. This is so quick and easy to make and is lovely when the weather is cold and msierable outside.
