Danish Liver Pate

Cooking time: 1 hour
Preparation time: 15-20 mins.
Main cooking utensils: 1-quart ovenproof dish, deep baking pan
Oven temperature: 375°F
Oven position: center

For 4-8 servings you need*:
½-¾ lb. calf or pork liver
¼ lb. bacon
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup flour
⅔ cup milk
Seasoning
1 egg
2 teaspoons grated onion
1-2 teaspoons sherry (optional)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

*Serve with salad for 4 people or as an hors d’oeuvre or sandwich filling for larger number.

  1. Wash the liver. Take away the sinews and veins, cut liver and chop or grind three times then grind bacon with liver.
  2. Make a thick sauce or butter, flour, and milk, stirring well; add seasoning.
  3. Mix the liver and bacon thoroughly with the sauce and egg.
  4. Add grated onion and sherry then season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place mixture in a greased dish. Place this is in a pan filled with water, cover with foil or greased wax paper, and cook until firm.

TO SERVE: With hot toast and butter, as an hors d’oeuvre

TO VARY: Use chicken or other poultry liver. For coarse pâté grind only once.

TO STORE: Melt little butter, pour over pâté. This prevents it drying. Pâté will keep some time in a refrigerator, so it is worth making a large quantity – this pâté is creamy so keeps particularly well.
