In my opinion, yes. Do you have high levels of cholesterol? Are you low-carbing for your diabetes? Low-carbing does great things for cholesterol!

That's for SURE - I think people cook it to death & then it's tougher than shoe leather. It doesn't need much cooking . . . since it's usually sliced pretty thin, just needs browned on one side & quickly on the other. This is the first time I've used Brandi's Breading on it, and it was terrific!

Liver is great stuff! I especially like putting chicken livers on skewers, sprinkling them with garlic and salt and pepper, and then BBQing them. My father cooked a liver dumpling that was awesome (but of course wrapping the liver in carbs wouldn't be my choice nowadays!). I am still looking for a restaurant that serves a good liver and onions nearby, because my spouse doesn't like liver at all so cooking it at home is kind of a waste.

Come down here to the Ozarks! We moved here 25 years ago, & that's one of the first things I noticed about eating out around here - they offer liver/onions in restaurants! One time several years ago when my FIL was still alive, we took them out to dinner at a pretty nice restaurant, and all four of us had liver/onions! Some major regional differences in restaurant cuisine.

And y'know you can always wrap those little chicken livers with bacon! =)

Wrapped in bacon??? OMG that's a great idea!

I am a recent liver convert. Just had my first try when we cooked a whole duck and my brother and I decided to saute the liver and kidneys in butter. It was AMAZING!

I have a whole pastured liver in the freezer just waiting for me to get to. The almond flour breading sounds great.

I misread the title. I thought it was "Beware - if you hate YOUR liver, ignore this message!" And I thought it was going to be about watching your alcohol intake or something like that. I'm such a dork.

Another liver lover here! No one else in my family will eat it. My husband accused me of trying to poison him

Gotta chime in with my vote for yummy liver. I'm the only one that eats it here though. My mother used to serve us liver for dinner (there was always leftovers since only She and I ate it) so she would cut it up into chunks and fry it mixed with mashed potatoes the next morning. Now the potatoes are out (and I'm not at all into the cauliflower substitute) so I do the bacon wrapped liver as well together with tons of fried onions and garlic.
