Chicken Livers...

I still make the livers as I used to but I put the spread on
LC Crackers. There are many cracker recipes on this board.
Easy to make...I also put it on my lc deli rye bread. So good.

Almond Onion/Rye Bread
Preheat oven 350F
Spray with release agent 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" baking pan
.
COOKS' NOTE: HAVE INGREDIENTS MEASURED OUT AND
RIGHT NEXT TO THE PROCESSOR.
Place Ingredients into Food Proccesor in Order they are Given:

2 c. unblanched almond flour
Rounded 1/4 tsp. salt
1 full tbs. caraway seeds
1 rounded tsp. of onion powder
Process until well mixed.
ADD:
1 tbs. dark molasses
3 tbs. water
3 tbs. Peanut oil
Let this process until it is a soft dough
If it is dry, add a bit of water, too soft? Add a bit of flour
Let it process a full minute
ADD:
3 eggs, Emulsify for a minute.
You will be able to see it become a thick batter
batter.
Add:
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tbs. plus 1/4 tsp. white vinegar
Blend this very well. Over a minute.

Pour into your prepared baking pan and bake for about 30-40 minutes.
Cool on a rack. When cold, cut loaf in half, then stand it up
and cut 5 pieces in each half. 10 nice slices of onion/rye bread
that holds up to large mile high pastrami or any other sandwich.

thanks, TBipp, I found them both.

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...ond-thins.html
Almond Thins

those recipes both look great. i can really imagine the almond thins with the spread, but i think i'm going to have to try the coconutty ones, too. thank you!

i sometimes fight to not to overeat crispy/salty savory things. would you have any concern that these might be triggering for me? (if so, i can try a small batch.)

doing the search i also saw an idea about making crackers out of a low carb Lavash offered here, that looked pretty good, too. and safe!

I very much also like the low carb Lavash made into crackers but I may like the crackers more. I have not overeaten the Almond Thins or Coconutty crackers because they are so filling as compared to a high carb cracker. With a chicken liver spread, they would be especially filling. I agree that crispy/salty, is sooooo good!

ok, i'll try with the full recipe. if i find myself tempted to overindulge, i'll freeze some in batches. they will probably need to be recrisped after freezing, so that will keep me in the driver's seat.

You can also stuff the paté into celery ribs - easy, crunchy, holds plenty of paté and I don't overeat it! Unlike the almond thins. I can clear a whole panful of those things at an alarming rate.

forget the crackers, how do you make the chicken liver spread? I could eat that all by itself!

it's super simple to make.

sautee some minced onion (bacon grease or schmaltz is good here) until transparent. add some minced garlic and a pinch of allspice until garlic is fragrant. add chopped chicken livers, and cook until no longer pink. place it all in a mini chopper and whizz it up. season to taste.

and now we have two votes for just eating it on a spoon!

Wow! I bought chicken livers just before Christmas to feed my cat (and eat the leftovers) because she was very sick. Just stuck them in the freezer until I could decide to get them out and make something. DH won't touch them, so I needed something good I could nibble on for a few days. This'll do the trick. Thawing them right now. Thanks!

Thank you! Miraculously, Emma the cat is back to her old frisky self. She is 21 years old, and is completely blind and deaf. But she makes her way around the house and jumps up on the couch, bed, and chairs like a much younger kitty. The week before Christmas, she lost 20% of her body weight (she only weighs 6 lbs, tops at any given time), and she was unable to stand. We were nursing her gently and saying our goodbyes. Then one day she ate a shrimp and started to recover. Now she's back to her old self. Sweet, sweet cat. So I get to eat the chicken livers.

awww, that's a sweet story, Diana. i'm glad your Emma is better. we said goodbye to our little cuddle bug Anu just before Christmas, and we are missing her hugs. give your Emma a kiss for me.

i have some turnips and rutabagas i need to use up, and i found a recipe for turnip pancakes, so i'm going to try those with the chicken liver spread today. i haven't had time to make the crackers yet -- yesterday was my hubby's bday -- so i was using melba toast i made out of a loaf of rustic bread. it fits in my carbs if i don't overeat for the day, but it's not what i want. my engine works so much better if i give it the right fuel.
