Bacon Wrapped Beef Liver Roulade
Instructions
  1. First, preheat your oven to 170°C (340°F)
  2. Put the beef liver on a cutting board and beat the pieces with a meat hammer to make them flatter. You don't need to flip them, it is enough if you just hit from one side. Also, make sure that you don't hit too hard as the meat already is pretty tender and you don't want to create holes

  3. Next, add the seasonings, also from one side only - this will be the inside. Then, spread the spinach (e.g. with a spoon) on the pieces

  4. Afterwards, put the feta cheese on top. Place it centered and only on one half of the liver pieces. This way it is easier to roll them up

  5. Now, roll the liver up. Start on the side with the cheese to make sure it is in the center of the roulade

  6. After that, create a bacon weave of 4-5 slices on top of each roulade. Lift each one up with one hand while wrapping the bacon around the bottom with the other hand

  7. If you have small packets, wrap another layer of bacon around them to make sure everything is nicely wrapped without any big gaps and place the roulades on a baking tray with parchment paper

  8. Finally, put the baking tray into the oven and bake the roulades for 25-30 minutes until the bacon becomes brown and crispy
Recipe Notes

You probably could skip the meat hammer step if your beef liver pieces already are pretty flat (about 0.5cm / 0.2in of thickness).

If they are way too thick, lay them on the cutting board.
Then, cut from one side with a sharp knife until you nearly reached the end of the other side.
Now, you can simply fold out the pieces and have thinner ones.

At step 3 I used frozen spinach which I thawed & pre-cooked in the microwave for about 3 minutes while beating up the liver:

Of course, you may also use different stuffings.

One idea that I've had was pizza stuffing with tomato paste or fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese & Italian / Mediterranean herbs (oregano, rosemary, thyme). Maybe with some additional ground beef, pepperoni, fried chicken or even pulled pork.

Recipe Notes

If you want this dessert to have a consistency more like porridge serve it hot or don't let it thicken that much when cooking.

Otherwise, let it cool down and put it in the fridge the consistency becomes more similar to pudding.

Pro tip:
In case you like to add some fruits, I'd recommend adding them when the pudding is done already.
Red berry compote goes great with it and you can easily prepare it by heating up frozen berries in a pot, adding some water & gelatin and boiling it until it thickens.  Then, let it cool down. Holds in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

You may also try out one of the other optional ingredients, a combination of them or leaving out the cinnamon. I only sprinkled some cacao powder on top here and mixed it in with the spoon afterwards.
