I made this for a Memorial Day weekend gathering with my family. If you love Braunschweiger, you will love this. I was amazed at how the kids gobbled it up on crackers, too. It makes a large batch, so we had plenty of leftovers which were great for sandwiches the next day on sourdough bread. When I make it again, I'll cut the recipe in half. Great recipe!

I thought it was pretty good, but most everyone else didn't like it! It was not a pretty appetizer!

This recipe was great! I made this recipe, along with several other cheese ball recipes found on this site, for a party I had. This one was a huge hit among the liverwurst lovers in the crowd, and even a few brave souls who tried it for the first time. The thing I liked best about this recipe was that, while I had to add things to the outsides of the other cheese balls at the last minute, this one was already done, and ready to plate. I only made two minor changes: 1) I used Mother Goose liverwurst (found in the deli section of the supermarket) instead of the Braunschweiger, and 2) I studded the outside of the balls (this recipe made two larger-sized balls, by the way) with a mixture of green and black sliced olives, instead of just the green ones the recipe called for. Made for a "funky" presentation that people commented on positively. Thank you for this creative recipe!

I used this to make little sandwiches for a poker game, so I left out the olives and put in a few squirts of mustard. So easy to spread! I recommend a full cup of chopped onion. The menfolk gobbled this up.

Simple and tasty. Instead of forming into a ball I just put it in a dish and garnished with green olives. Everyone loved it!

Several months ago, my husband had tried a similar braunschweiger spread made by his coworker's mom. After he raved about it for a couple of days, I decided to try to find the recipe online. I found this recipe to be the closest to what he thought was in the other one he tasted. After I tasted it, I was hooked as well. It is awesomely tasty and very easy to make.

I halved this recipe, mixed it in the food processor, and it turned out very smooth and creamy. All I could taste was liverwurst, so I added more of the steak sauce, onion, and ketchup AND added tabasco (quite a bit actually) which really kicked it up a notch. Rather than forming into a ball, I just served it in a little crock with olive slices on the top. Next time, I'm going to mix in some chopped olives after processing the spread. I love liverwurst, my husband not so much, but he really liked this!
