- 1 pound chicken livers, cleaned and trimmed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- 4 slices of bread
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup grated cheese (your choice – cheddar, gruyere, etc.)
Cooking Method & Instructions:
- Season the chicken livers with salt and pepper.
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken livers and cook until they’re browned on both sides. Be careful not to overcook; the livers should be slightly pink in the center.
- Remove the livers from the skillet and set them aside. In the same skillet, add the onion and sauté until translucent. Add the garlic and thyme, and cook for another minute until fragrant.
- Return the chicken livers to the skillet and stir everything together. Remove from heat and let it cool.
- Once the liver mixture is cool, spread it evenly on two slices of bread. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top, and cover with the remaining slices of bread.
- Heat a pan over medium heat. Melt a tablespoon of butter, then place one sandwich in the pan. Cook until the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook the other side until browned and the cheese is melted. Repeat with the second sandwich.
