Calories 220kcal

Ingredients

  • 250 grams chicken livers (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 125 grams butter (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 4 slices bacon (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 1 yellow onion (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • sea salt (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)
  • 1/4 cup ghee (preferably free range, 5.3 oz)

Instructions

  • Trim the chicken livers of any sinew.
  • Melt butter in frying pan and add onion, sauté gently until translucent.
  • Add bacon and herbs and cook until bacon is done.
  • Place livers in pan and cook over a gentle heat until cooked.
  • You want the livers to be just slightly pink in the centre but without any fluids seeping out.
  • You will get juices in the pan, but this is normal, just make sure that theyre not oozing out of the liver still.
  • Don't overcook them or they'll be grey and the texture will be grainy.
  • Once cooked, remove from heat and sit aside to cool.
  • Add the orange or Cointreau and stir through, along with your salt and pepper.
  • Once cool, transfer the mixture to a food processor and blitz until smooth.
  • Pass it through a sieve, for a super smooth finish.
  • Place the finished pate in the blender with about 1/4 cup of pouring cream and blend well, tasting and adding more cream as required, for a lighter tasting and fluffier textured finished pate.
  • Season with salt to taste (or skip).
  • Refrigerate for approx.
  • 2 hours to firm the pate up.
  • You can also add a layer of melted ghee to seal the top.
  • This will keep the pate fresh for longer.
  • Serve with crispy vegetables, as a dip with Keto Crackers, or spread on top of Keto Bread! Store, well covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Can also be frozen.
