Braunschweiger Spread




I made this recipe (adapted) for a group rotation dinner for tonight. The food theme is German foods. My friend Carol B. gave me her recipe for this rich German spread using Braunschweiger, a type of pork liverwurst that you can purchase in your local grocery store.




Ingredients:

8 oz. Cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Liver sausage (Braunschweiger)
2 t. Lemon juice
1 T. Chopped onion
1 t. Worchestershire Sauce
Dash Salt and Pepper

Pumpernickle or Rye bread; or Crackers



Carol said she uses lots more onion and a little more Worchestershire sauce.

I increased the recipe for the dinner party using:

12 oz. of cream cheese
12 oz. of the liver
3 t. lemon juice
4 T. onions
1 T. worchestershire sauce

I also added:

1/4 t. or so of dried thyme
1 T. Sherry

Soften cream cheese.
Finely chop the onions.
Add all ingredients in a bowl.




Using a fork, mix all the ingredients until combined. Adjust seasonings as needed.



Serve in a nice crock or bowl with a hearty bread such as Pumpernickle, Rye, or Rye wheat thins.

That looks wonderful. I wonder how it would go with some diced, spiced beets?
