  • knife
  • Frying Pan
  • stove or oven


  • 1 lb livermush cut in 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 1 cup instant flour such as Wondra
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs bacon grease
  • 2 Tbs whole butter


  • Cut 4 ¼ inch slices of the livermush and lay on a clean paper towel (this helps remove moisture).
  • In a large bowl, mix the Wondra flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, salt and pepper and mix well, set aside.
  • In a 10” cast iron skillet, heat the bacon grease and butter until hot and a drop of water spatters enthusiastically.
  • While the pan is heating, very carefully dredge the scrapple slices in the wondra flour.  Pat the flour into the livermush gently.
  • Lay each piece of livermush into the hot oil after it is dredged in the flour.  Fry as many as 3-4 at a time.
  • Cook for 3 minutes per side without disturbing during cooking, turn the pieces very gently.
  • Remove to a clean paper towel to drain.



  • It is ok to leave the cayenne pepper off is you do not like a little hot flavor in  your food.
  • Make sure to use the kosher salt and not table salt.  
  • If using table salt, reduce to “just a pinch” The wondra flour makes a nice crispy exterior, if you use regular flour, it is ok, the edges just might not be as crusty.
