This is a wonderful hors d'oeuvre

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place bacon strips on frying pan with low flame and cover pan.
  2. Melt some butter or margarine, and add the soy sauce, ginger, sherry and garlic in another frying pan with a container of chicken livers on a medium flame.
  4. While bacon is still soft and only partially done, remove and place strips onto a paper towel to slightly cool.
  5. When livers are done on both sides, remove from flame and also set aside onto paper towel to slightly cool.
  6. Slice the chicken livers into somewhat flat pieces.
  7. Take a piece of chicken liver and a slice of water chestnut and wrap either 1/2 strip of bacon or a whole strip of bacon around the liver and water chestnut, securing it with a wooden toothpick.
  8. Place the Rumaki onto a cookie sheet, and continue this same procedure, until the cookie sheet is filled and the livers and bacon are gone.
  9. Set the cookie sheet with all of the Rumaki aside.
  10. About 20 minutes before company arrives, preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  11. About 15 minutes before company arrives, place the cookie sheet with the Rumaki into the oven for 10 minutes, and then raise the oven to broil for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven and serve on a hot plate.
  13. Leave the toothpicks in place so they can pick it up by the toothpicks.

careful of the broiler - burns easy

Very easy and tasty. I like that you pre-cook everything so the oven time is shorter, and the bacon gets done!

I made Rumaki this way, but without the sherry. It was still delicious and yes, more steps/ pans, but a better tasting, (and "safer" - no smoke) Rumaki if you ask me.
