Feeling a little homesick for my Omi, and therefore the perfect thing for lunch is chopped liver. The dish is basically a mash up of chicken livers, onions, bacon and hard boiled eggs made into something like a paste and then eaten on toast. It's way better than it sounds.
Growing up, Omi made lots of dishes with chicken livers, and this is one of my favorites that my Mum also makes really well. All of our recipes are a little different and yet I still think of this as my Omi's recipe. Funny how recipes can change over generations and yet can still be thought of as the 'authentic' recipe. Makes me wonder how original the Colonel's fried chicken recipe actually is.
Questions for another time.
You need 5 chicken livers, 4 slices of bacon, half an onion, and two eggs. And salt and pepper to taste.
Before you do anything else put an egg or two in a pot and cover with cold water, bring to a boil cover and turn off the heat. Let it sit there until you need your hard boiled eggs.
Once cooked, take them out of the pan and when they're cool enough to handle roughly chop and then put all the livers in an appropriate sized container so that you can use an immersion blender to give them a smoother texture, you want it a little smooth and a little chunky.
Season with salt and pepper add the bacon (which should be chopped at some point) the fried onions and then peel and chop the hard boiled eggs. I boiled two but only ended up using one.
Once it taste's lovely put it in the fridge for a few hours so that the dish can mellow. Once you can't wait any more make some toast, and maybe a citrusy parsley salad.
