Lamb Kidney Breakfast

This was one of my Mom’s favorite breakfasts. Right there with crab cake Benedict; she would ask me to cook this whenever I visited. Now, lamb kidneys are hard to find, so it was rare for me to make. Happy Family Ranch just “processed some lambs, so I called dibs on the kidneys.(I was the only person in that line.) They need some care in cooking – there is a fine line between done and rubber, so be careful. I hope you read this because liking it may be a reach.

1/2 pound lamb kidneys, cleaned, vein removed
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon season salt
1 teaspoon garlic
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vinegar
2 slices toast
