In some sections of Europe it became a custom to serve liver on St. Anthony's Day. The origin of this tradition is not known; it might have been occasioned by a pre-Christian practice of eating liver at the time of the summer solstice, which in the Middle Ages fell around St. Anthony's Day because of the progressive slowdown of the Julian calendar (which was corrected by Pope Gregory XIII in the sixteenth century).

DIRECTIONS

Sprinkle liver lightly with flour, salt and pepper. Dip in egg, then in bread crumbs. Fry liver in hot butter in skillet 5 minutes each side. Serve with liquor from pan as gravy. Garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.
