This was my Grandma's Chopped Liver recipe too! Sadly, she passed away in 1997, before I had the recipe. I followed your recipe precisely, and am quite nostalgic at the moment. A heartfelt thank you for this terrific recipe, which I will pass along to my daughters. Jodi

This was pretty tasteless. Next time, I'll go back to starting off with sautéing the liver with onions.

Holy Moly! This rivals any chopped liver I've had from Jewish delis. Delicious. I altered the recipe only slightly, because I had only 1 pound of livers and was low on onions. I used a scallion with the liver and kept both eggs. I fried half of one onion and used the other half raw. Oh, the discipline it is taking not to eat the whole batch! Thank you!!

I was staying with my elderly mother and she was having problems with anemia. In addition to her iron supplement I looked up on the internet other iron rich foods that I could make for her. Liver is right up there at the top and I found this recipe. OMG it is good! The three textures of onion (boiled, fried and raw) plus the hard boiled eggs add tons to the texture and flavor. Reminds me of when we used to get really good chopped chicken livers from the Jewish deli as a kid. Now I make it all the time. It's so easy! Thanks for sharing AJ.

i was skeptical how this would taste using the raw onions. I almost left them out. I was also worried about processing this to mush in the food processor. I decided to follow the recipe exactly and was blown away by how great it came out. I used pulse on the food processor, resulting in a great consistency. It wasn't too oniony and didn't have any of that gamey flavor that chopped liver can get. A great recipe. THANKS!

This is awesome chopped liver. The only thing I did different was use children broth instead of water and then added 1 chicken bouillon cube.

This is truly a special treat for those who love chopped liver. It's definitely an acquired taste, but once you've got it, you find yourself craving it. I made this for my bro's birthday party and it was a hit. Thanks!

My husband swears this tastes just like his mom's recipe. Turns out great every time and is really easy to prepare.
