Pate cake, pate cake

Yes, yet another cack blog title, sick of them yet???

I decided to make chicken liver pate (with orange...)

you'll need

100g Butter
1 garlic clove
1 small onion chopped ( I only used half mine and I used a red onion)
250g chicken livers
1 Orange
1 Tbsp Orange Juice
1 Tbs Milk (optional)

Wash your chicken livers in cold water and pat dry.
Take half your butter, melt in the pan
add your onion and stir until soft
crush your garlic clove into the pan as well cook for 1 min
take onion and garlic out of pan with slotted spoon and set aside

heat butter up again, add liver, cook for 2/3 mins until brown on outside but pink on inside (I cooked mine a bit more than this as I'm funny about cooking meat...)

Add Orange juice, zest of your orange, livers, garlic & Onions into the food processor blend until smooth.

I tasted mine at this point and wasn't keen on exactly how it tasted, So I added the juice from the orange and a tablespoon of milk and blitzed again.

Tasted again, much better

Tada, it didn't make a whole lot, but it was a trial run to see if it turned out okay.

enjoy if you try it!!
