December 10, 2020

Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 1 ½ hours
To serve: 4

You will need
1 ½ lb. pig’s liver
8 oz. bacon
1 clove garlic or 1 shallot
6 anchovy fillets
¾ pint breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 egg yolk
¼ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 bay leaves

Put half liver in a pan, cover with water and simmer until cooked. Put cooked and uncooked liver, half bacon, garlic or shallot and anchovies twice through a mincer. Add breadcrumbs, beaten egg and egg yolk. Season. Mix thoroughly. Lay bay leaves in the bottom of mould, cake tin or loaf tin and line with half remaining bacon rashers. Fill it with pâté. Cover with buttered greaseproof paper. Place mould in baking tin filled with hot water so that the water comes at least 1-inch up the mould. Bake in a moderate oven (350° F. or Gas Mark 4) for about 1 ½ hours. Cool and remove paper.
