    Rhyleysgranny – it has been some time since I made this one myself. As I was typing chicken livers I remembered something else I did with them. Dip the chicken livers in beaten egg or yoghurt then coat with breadcrumbs and fry them… yummy!

    Call this one Country Cholesterol Pate what with the 1/2# of chicken fat, 2 rashers (??) of bacon & 1/4 pt of cream. Sorry I HAD to point that out, tho’ I’m sure it is Yummy.
    If it is Yummy, not good for the Tummy.

    Bhb – a ‘rasher’ is a slice of bacon. You certainly wouldn’t eat all of the Pâté by yourself. I sometimes have some for a starter or on toast or crusty bread for lunch with a bunch of grapes! When making it just for me, it has less fat and NO cream!

    Grannymar, I would not say that BHB would not eat all of the pate herself. She needs all the energy she can get to beat down those rattlesnakes that come into her yard!

    This is so simple and so delicious I don’t know why we don’t make it more often .. .ah that would be the cholesterol factor! Seriously, I’ll keep this one!

    Maynard – Thankfully I am not troubled by rattlesnakes, but I am pestered by other peoples cats!

    WWW – I look forward to a vegetarian Pâté and I some of my commentators will too.

    Rhyleysgranny – I am sure a sweet chilli sauce or indeed a ginger one would go well with the crumbed chicken livers.
