    DeSouter's Note:

    This smooth, delicate pork Pate is made with onion, garlic and eggs. The loaf shaped "sausage" is cut into thick slices and either steamed or gently sauteed. Leberkase (German for liver cheese) is served warm or at room temperature. It's delicious with rye bread and mustard. Prep time does not include prep time for meat stock.
