    Hi Ritten,

    No, i don't add any eggs. But yes, my ratio does work out to about 50/50 liver and butter. I've only started eating liver this year, so it took quite a few goes for me to find a simple but tasty (and not too livery) pâté mix. Sometimes I have added some chopped mushrooms into the butter for a few minutes before adding the liver just for something different. I'm also thinking I may at some stage add in some bacon, or onions.. or whatever else dings my lightbulb
    I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life

      I made some chicken liver for breakfast today using an old primal trick. Wrap it in bacon. Needless to say, it was delicious and happily had none of the gross mealy texture of previous tries. I think it may be the quality maybe or the preparation. Anyway, I would totally suggest it as an entry to offal.

        I use half calf liver, half chicken liver and I dice it all up into tiny pieces.
        I put a crap load of butter into a pan with some dried thyme and wait until the butter starts to turn brown.
        Then I take the pan off the stove and stir in the liver. I let the residual heat do most of the cooking.
        Then I add a dash of cream and put the pan back on the stove for a tick to warm the cream.
        Then I blitz it all and put in the fridge to set.
        I did a slightly different take on this, but you inspired me, so thank you!

        8 oz lamb liver
        1/3 cup goat milk
        1 Tblsp butter
        1 Tblsp coconut oil
        2 oz onion
        coconut aminos to taste (because just about everything tastes better with coconut aminos)

        I sauteed the onion in the coconut oil. The lamb liver had already been sauteed in some fat I can no longer remember (leftovers in the freezer). Everything into the pool/food processor. Process 'til smooth. Chill in fridge until ready.

        It might not be as creamy as some folks like, but I like liver, and so have no need to mask its flavor or texture with lots of fat. Still, the butter in it certainly added a nice touch. Yum.

        Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
