A Delicious Appetizer … Our Family Favorite!

Holidays are the time when I always return to this recipe. It’s a fan favorite at any gathering, especially with my kids. There are many variations of Mock (meaning without) Chicken Liver recipes. I have tried many and the favorite is still our original family recipe from my uncle Howard. I always think of him when I make this tasty recipe. This one uses cooked canned peas, but I have friends who have recipes with green beans, chickpeas and mushrooms.

Notes

This is a delicious recipe that can be served with any veggies as a dip, Mary's Gone Crackers (my favorite), matzo, or any cracker for that matter. I have even used it as a spread on a sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Give that a try with the leftovers (if there are any) the next day on two slices of thin Dave's Killer Bread, 21 whole grains with seeds. Very yummy!
