  2. Next, add the cream cheese, eggs & all seasonings and mince everything again until the mixture is homogenous. This should take about 1 minute and if necessary scrape off the residues from the side of your food processor's container, then mix again for a minute

  3. Now, put a baking sheet inside a loaf pan or grease it with butter to prevent sticking. Then, pour the mixture into it

Recipe Notes

You can check if the loaf is done by sticking a chopstick into it and pulling it out again. If there is no residue on the chopstick your liver meatloaf / liver bread is finished.

This recipe is very basic and you can modify it by adding ground beef, a diced onion, a minced avocado(minced in food processor before adding the liver) or some shredded cheese that you stir in with a spoon after mincing everything.

For a liver pudding, simply add a tablespoon of butter, 100g heavy cream & 250g ground pork/beef to the mixture and 2-3 bay leaves on top, before putting it into the oven.

Another idea would be to bake the mixture for about 20-30 minutes on a baking tray and using it as a pizza crust.

I simply added some mustard, low carb ketchup and cheese. If you want to you can go all the way to make sandwiches with the liver bread, with salad, cucumber, bacon, cheese and a fried egg - or whatever you prefer.

Marinated Chicken Liver
Instructions
  1. You need to marinate the chicken liver about 12-24 hours before you want to cook it. Optimally, you do this the previous evening if possible
  2. Put the chicken livers into a zip lock bag or a container and add all other ingredients
  3. Mix everything thoroughly and make sure that the meat is completely covered. Then, close your zip lock bag or container and store it in the fridge for 12-24 hours

  4. When this waiting period is over, preheat your pan with some lard or coconut oil in it to medium heat
  5. Finally, fry the chicken liver for 10-15 minutes. It is no problem if some of the marinade goes into the pan and you can even use it to cook the liver in it or make a sauce out of it
  6. While the liver is cooking, you may prepare some side dishes, like boiled eggs, vegetables or mushrooms
Recipe Notes

Never pour raw, leftover marinade over the cooked liver.

If you want to use the leftover marinade, make sure to boil it up to kill all harmful bacteria.

Don't marinate in aluminum containers or foil, because a chemical reaction could spoil the food.

The best way to marinate liver is using the zip lock bag in order for it to be evenly surrounded by the marinade.

  5. Turn down the heat to low, put a lid on the pan and fry the meatballs slowly for about 10 minutes, until they start to become solid on the top, too
  6. Now, you can flip and slowly fry them with the lid on for another 5-10 minutes
  7. Finally, set the heat to medium-high and fry the meatballs as evenly as possible from all sides, for about 5 minutes, in order to get a nice brown colour and roasting flavors
Broccoli
  1. While the meatballs are frying, you can easily prepare some oven baked broccoli as a side dish. First, set your oven to 180°C-200°C.
  2. Put the broccoli on a baking tray which goes into the oven. After 5-10 minutes, the broccoli should be thawed and you can sprinkle some salt on top.
  3. Finally, bake it for another 20-25 minutes until it starts to become dark brown on the top and has a slight crispiness.
Recipe Notes

As you can see on the picture I made a creamy sauce to go with everything, too. If you want to know how to make it check out this asparagus cream sauce recipe.
