Time 2h40m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 6

2 eggs
2 tablespoons canola oil
salt to taste
1 pound chicken livers, rinsed and trimmed
2 onions, chopped
1 pinch white sugar


  • Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel and chop once cold.
  • Meanwhile, heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes more. Place onion on a plate and set aside. Stir chicken livers into the same skillet. Cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. Place chicken livers on the same plate as the onions and allow to cool completely.
  • Place chicken livers and onion in a food processor. Process until desired texture is achieved. Place liver mixture into a bowl and season with salt and sugar. Stir in the chopped eggs. Chill before serving.

Yield Serves 6–8

Number Of Ingredients 9

5 organic free-range eggs
1 lb chicken livers, trimmed (remove any green spots carefully)
2 large onions, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil (or 1 tablespoon schmaltz, see below)
a few gribenes (optional), see below
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Kiddush wine, brandy or chicken stock
salt and freshly ground black pepper
a little paprika, to garnish


  • Hard-boil the eggs for 10 minutes, drain, and set aside to cool. In a large frying pan, gently cook the onions in the oil (or schmaltz) until soft and golden. Increase the heat, add the livers, and stir for a few seconds so that they absorb the flavor of the onion. Either pour the mixture into a food processor and process to a coarse or smooth paste with the gribenes (if using), or pass the mixture through an old-fashioned grinder. Scoop into a bowl. Grate the eggs on the coarse side of a grater and add to the bowl, reserving a little of the grated egg for the garnish. Stir in the parsley and fold in gently. Moisten the mixture with some wine, brandy, or chicken stock, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until needed. Serve in scoops on individual plates topped with a little grated egg and paprika for color, and generous pieces of fresh Friday-night challah.
  • To make gribenes and schmaltz
  • Remove the spare fat from a raw chicken and place in a pan. (There is usually a lump of fat around the neck, in an older bird at least.) Add 1 cup (8 oz) dairy-free margarine, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 large onion (with the skin left on to enhance the golden color). Remove the skin from the chicken, cut into smallish pieces, and add to the pan. Set over very low heat and cook for 1 1/2-2 hours until all of the fat has been rendered gently out of the chicken skin. Remove the skin from the pan and drain on paper towels to form gribenes or crackling. Pour the fat (schmaltz) into a heavy-duty glass dish and store in the fridge until needed*. As the fat cools, a rich jelly will collect at the bottom of the dish. This jelly forms a delicious base for soup or sauces.
  • The fat (schmaltz) will keep for up to 6 weeks in the fridge. Store the gribenes in the fridge.


Jewish Deli-Style Chopped Chicken Livers image

The Jewish version of pate, this rich spread gets a flavor boost from the sweet caramelized onions and the rendered chicken fat. Not a dish for the faint of heart, literally. It's wonderful on little pumpernickel squares with cornichons, but in a Jewish deli you can also find it spread between two slices of rye for lunch. Can be made 1 day ahead and kept in the refrigerator. From the Take-Out Menu Cookbook.

Time 2h20m

Yield 4-6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

6 tablespoons schmaltz (see related recipe)
1 lb chicken liver, trimmed of any visible fat and membrane
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
2 large eggs, hard-cooked and chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
toasted rye bread
matzos, and
cornichon, for serving


  • Prepare the Schmaltz as directed in the recipe. Rinse the livers and pat them dry with paper towels.
  • In a large saute pan set over meidum heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the Schmaltz and saute the livers until browned, turning once, about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per side. They should be just barely pink inside. Don't overcook them or they will be dry. Transfer the livers to a cutting board to cool.
  • Using the same pan, heat another 2 tablespoons of the Schmaltz and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the cooked onions and livers to the bowl of a food processor. Add the eggs, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons of Schmaltz. Pulse 6 to 8 times, until coarsely chopped. Do not puree. Taste for seasoning and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Serve with toast, crackers, or mazto and cornichons.

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 lb. chicken livers (fresh, not previously frozen)
2 cups finely chopped onions
3 hard-boiled eggs
6 Tblsp. schmaltz
salt and black pepper to taste
a few gribenes (optional)


  • Preheat broiler to 500°. Broil livers on broiler rack 4 inches from the heat source for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the oven and finely chop livers.
  • Melt 6 Tblsp. schmaltz in skillet and sauté onions over medium/low heat until soft and just beginning to brown. Add chopped liver pieces and sauté 1 minute more. Remove from heat.
  • Pour contents of skillet into a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, chop the eggs and add them to the liver mixture. Mix in the salt, pepper, and gribenes (if using). Mix everything together until well blended. Chill at least 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve small portions of chopped liver garnished with kosher dill pickles and pickled beet slices during the winter. Garnish the liver with fresh tomato and English cucumber slices in the summer.
  • A medium-dry white wine, such as chardonnay, goes very well with chopped liver. So does a white zinfandel.
