besides the usual pan fried with onions and bacon, what can i make with them?

i can google recipes well enough, so i'm looking for tnt recipes that i can ask questions about if needed.

One of the best things I ever ate, was my Grandmother's liver knishes - mashed potatoes encased with cooked (ground) liver and onions, & fried in chicken fat. (First you start with a chicken for the schmaltz lol.) She never used a recipe, & my memory is dim. As I recall, she added some flour to cooked cooled mashed potatoes, ground cooked liver in a meat grinder - fuzzy on this), made an indentation in the mashed taters & filled w/ liver/onions, & fried in a skillet. It looked pretty simple. Maybe someone here has a tnt, or you could wing it from some liver knishes recipes on the web - as it's not a "measured" recipe.

I kinda like this one from there.

Them Banjo Pickers
Them Banjo Pickers, mighty funny ways,
Same damn song, three or four days
Them Banjo Pickers, all they know,
Cumberland Gap, and Do-Si-Do,
Them Banjo Pickers, talkin' 'bout strings,
Banjo pegs, other such things!
Them Banjo Pickers, poker-faced mugs,
Never do smile, just play scruggs!
Them Banjo Pickers sure are nice,
Play each song, At least twice,
Them Banjo Pickers never git sick
Pickin' them banjo's Pick, pick, pick!

Bucky, don't forget to teach your boy one of my fave kid songs:

Great Green Gobs of Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm sure you could work some liver into it!

This is adapted from my Swedish wife's recipe. I is much simpler than her recipe, but it's still great. I left in the Swedish for your enjoyment.

150 gram kycklinglever chicken livers
2 äggulor egg yolks
2 schalottenlökar, finhackade finely chopped shallots
1 vitlöksklyfta, finhackad 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
4 TBS smör butter
.25 cup Brandy
.5 cup vispgrädde whipping cream
.5 tsp salt

Combine with food processor and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes

I love the Swedish/English language combo! Interesting that brandy is the same in both languages.

Thanks!

Pretty convincing that it's a Swedish recipe, including the Swedish. I bet that is supposed to be in a water bath in the oven.
