This famous oldtime dish will warm you up on a cold night. A favourite of my clients I was asked to cook this often. Served with a rich onion gravy it is still a winner. You could serve boiled potatoes and cabbage to make a larger meal.

  1. Place the bread in a bowl and cover with warm water, leave for five minutes.
  2. In a food processor mix the liver, bacon fat and the onion, do not over process, the ideal is a course mix.

  4. Flour hands and form the mix into largish balls , not too large!

  6. Meanwhile put the lentils in a pan, cover with water bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer till soft. Drain the lentils and mash them adding the salt.
