  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.

Sweet & Sour Chicken Liver
Instructions
  1. First, melt the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat
  2. Then, add chicken livers and evenly sear them for about 7 minutes until they get some dark brown colour
  3. Next, turn the heat down to low-medium, add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes until they become golden brown
  4. Now, add lemon juice, soy sauce, ketchup & the seasonings. Stir everything and let it heat up for a minute, until the liquid starts to boil. Afterwards, add the water and stir again
  5. Finally, let everything cook for 8-10 minutes while stirring occasionally, until most of the water is evaporated and reduced to a sauce of your desired thickness
Recipe Notes

Take care not to add too much salt, because the soy sauce is pretty salty already.

As a side dish, I like to simply cook some eggs or vegetables.
