Now I know this recipe is going to raise the roof on my daily viewing statistics. Everybody is always asking me for my recipe. Well, maybe I exaggerate.
Chicken livers are an excellent Paleo meal. I love them for breakfast with a half dozen fried eggs. They are extremely nutritious. It is a great way to get protein that is rich in A and B Vitamins, folic acid, iron, copper and CoQ10. I also like them because they have a fascinating texture, interesting flavor, they are easy to prepare and they are cheap at less than $2 a pound.
- 1 pound Chicken Livers
- half-pound Bacon
- Pepper, Cumin, Paprika, Cayenne
- Preheat oven to 400
Preparation is easy and quick. I rinse them in cold water. Then I spread the livers on a paper towel covered plate. I place another paper towel on top and I blog the excess moisture off while I prepare the bacon. I cut the strips of bacon in half. Then I cook them halfway. You do not want crisp bacon because you need to be able to shape it to wrap the livers. I quickly cook it in the microwave.
When the bacon is done I let it cool to touch, then I wrap each liver and run a toothpick skewer through it to hold it together. Line a cookie sheet with Parchment paper and line up all the wrapped livers in rows on the sheet. I grind pepper all over them and then I sprinkle Cumin, Paprika and Cayenne Pepper over them to taste.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and set on counter to cool.
