My family loves this spread with cracker. But I've also put it to use as a sandwich filling with lettuce and tomato. —Roberta Wolff, Waltham, Massachusetts
- 1 pound chicken livers

"Thank you Roberta! This is a great recipe. While you call it pate, to me it is chopped liver. I love that you use schmaltz (chicken fat) in yours. I will make this weekly! Thank you again."
