"This is a traditional Italian appetizer that is, essentially, liver pate served on toasted, rustic bread. This is a nice recipe for cocktail parties and wine tastings. For vegetarians in attendance, you can also prepare a version with finely chopped (and drained) herbed tomatoes as it is equally delicious. You can serve the dish hot or cold on toasted Italian bread." — nostatic

I toasted thin baquette slices sprinkled with olive oil and served the spread on the side...this was one of the favorite apps on the Christmas Eve Gathering table...didn't change a thing and won't change a thing the next time I make it...since it is an appetizer spread the serving size is a little funky because you only use a bit on each crostini...definately serves more than 4 as an appetizer...Thanks for a very lovely, upscale recipe...
The only thing we changed was that we only used pork liver because that is what we had. This needed a lot more onions. Maybe we have just lost our pallet for liver.
Delicious! Never had pâté before, even though we raise our own meat birds. I am a total convert thanks to this recipe. Thank you!
