Craving for chopped chicken livers

jsl | Dec 29, 2004 08:57 PM

Yesterday I had this enormous craving for chopped chicken liver. I live in south Orange County, Ca. which is not a mecca for buying it already made. So I decided I would make it myself. I grew up on this from my Irish mother and English father who loved it. I purchased the ingredients at the local super market. One pound chicken livers, a loaf of New York rye (the best they had) and I already had kosher pickles, Bubbies and TJ's. I sauteed 2 small onions and then added the chicken livers in canola oil. My mother always used chicken fat which I didn't have. I boiled 3 eggs until hard boiled. I then chilled both the livers and onions until they were very cold. I put all, including the eggs in the cuisinart and added salt and pepper. It turned out very well and I was in total bliss, disregarding cholestrol problems. Now, my question is what could I have done to make it even better? I was only using my memory of long ago when my mother made it. Any help will be appreciated because I want to make this again when I have the craving of one of my favorites. Now about the cholesterol, maybe next year.........
