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.

  2. Then, mince everything for about 30 seconds, add the egg and mince again for a few seconds until everything is mixed. To give the burgers a better consistency you may also add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut / almond flour or psyllium husk powder at this step

  3. Now, add some coconut oil or your preferred fat for frying to a pan and heat it up to low-medium heat. A non-stick pan would be perfect. In case you don't have one make sure to use enough fat to prevent sticking
  4. Next, use a spoon to put blobs of the meat mixture -with about 0.8 centimeters (about 1/3 inch) of thickness- into the pan

  5. Let the burgers fry slowly, for about 10 minutes, before flipping to make sure that they don't fall apart. It is easiest to wait until they start to become solid and coloured on their top's edges
  6. After flipping, fry for another 5-10 minutes until the burgers have reached your desired color. I like them to be more on the dark brown side

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.
