This is my locally famous chopped liver. It's definitely not healthy, but it is really good. I have been promised kingdoms and children have been named after me because of my chopped liver. ;-)

I can understand why your chopped liver is so famous. I would give this recipe 6 stars if I could. My husband is eating it out of the dish with a spoon. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I have to get back to the kitchen before he eats it all !
- 1 lb chicken liver
- 3 large onions
- 1⁄4 cup oil (for frying)
- 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
- salt and pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Cook the livers until done in any way you prefer.
- I grill them under the broiler.
- Chop the onions medium-coarsely and fry in the oil until browned, but not burnt.
- You have to babysit the onions, constantly stirring, so they don't burn.
- This can take some time, pull up and chair with a good book, or do other things but keep an eye (and nose) out for the onions.
- With the steel knife, grind the livers in a food processor.
- Add the hard-boiled eggs and give it another whirl until they are incorporated with the liver.
- Add the onions and any extra oil from the bottom of the pot.
- Scrape every last bit of onion into the food processor bowl, this is where the major flavor comes from.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- You can also add any other spices that you like, but this detracts from the traditional flavor of Jewish chopped liver.
- Whirl everything around in the food processor until it reaches the consistency you want.
- Some people prefer it coarse, some like it very fine, almost pate-like.
- Scrape the chopped liver into a serving bowl and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
- Serve with crackers or challah.
- Try to avoid the temptation to just shovel it into your mouth with a spoon directly from the bowl.
