Hühner Leberwurst / Chicken Liver Spread

This Leberwurst / liver spread is made with chicken livers, chicken breast fillets onion, garlic as well as selected herbs and spices.  Leberwurst is a traditional soft paste like sausage that is used as a savory topping on bread slices and often served with mustard and pickles. Liver spreads 

are mostly made from pork but are frequently prepared as well with beef and poultry parts. While many industrially produced sausages are made from less desirable parts of the animals used I prefered to use only A Grade meat parts and other quality ingredients.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
