  1. Heat large heavy based frying pan and fry the bacon until lightly golden, remove from the pan and set aside. Add the apple slices and cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat, set aside with the bacon.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in the pan. Toss the liver in the flour, shaking off any excess and cook for 3 minutes on each side, until lightly golden. Remove with a slotted spoon.
