I’ll let you in on a secret…I trick myself into eating liver, folks.
I call these patties “nutrient dense” as they contain several ingredients that have the most amount of nutrition of any food – pastured eggs, grass fed meat and liver. I know, I know, you probably groaned with displeasure when I mentioned liver. Many of us have memories of hiding it under vegetables or slipping it to the dog when mom wasn’t looking at the dinner table all those years ago.
I am not crazy about liver either. But, I know it is sooooo good for me so I find all kinds of creative ways to slip it into dishes so I don’t even know I am eating it. Yes, I trick myself into eating liver, folks. When obtaining liver, it is essential to get it from the best quality source available. I get mine at the farmers market from farmers I trust. You can also use any other kind of organ meat as well like kidneys, heart, and brain. These foods were known to be the sacred and vital foods to traditional cultures. They contain more vitamins than almost any other food. Eat once a week ideally or once a month minimum for optimal health. You can eat these patties for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can also make up a batch and freeze them in the freezer and pop them out when you want a quick bite. I puree the liver in the food processor or blender but you could also chop it up into small bits and mix in with the ground meat.
