You know that love to tinker in the kitchen and come up with unique Paleo recipes for burgers.  Sunday I decided to whip up  my a burger creation using chicken liver.   I've experimented with ways to enjoy organ meats without tasting them in the dish.  After many failures I came up with this  beef and liver burger recipe that is yummy and somehow reminds me of breakfast sausage.

 Nothing says loving like Liver in the oven. Wait, what?  If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be eating liver once a week and even better, enjoy it, I would have slapped your face and called you a liar.  Ok, maybe I wouldn’t have slapped your face but it is seriously amazing how much my taste buds have changed since I began this diet.

Now, the tricky part of getting your family to eat liver is the flavor.  It’s very rich and minerally and that you have to mask unless you get smart and start acclimating your family to the taste of it.

  3. Next add in the ground beef and all the spices.
  4. Pulse the food processor for roughly 1 minute until the mixture is blended.
  5. It will be slightly sticky so you will want to wet your hands before shaping the patties.

  7. Cook/Grill patties until it reaches your desired doneness (is that a word?).
  8. Enjoy on a lettuce wrap or hamburger bun.

I made burgers with a ground beef that was 20 percent organ meat that I get from a local farmer via a Farmers Market. I only seasoned them with salt and pepper. My husband and both kids liked the burgers. The liver gives the ground beef a richer flavor, and it makes the meat more tender. I'm just saying, for a weeknight, you can probably find this premixed, and you may not need to add all the seasonings for good taste. Although I may try your seasoning mix just for fun!

Hello!

Would these still work using beef liver? And would it be okay if I used a 95% lean ground beef?

I’m a little nervous but want to try it for a preconception diet!!

Thank you!!

Yes, you might have to add oil to the pan though. Baby dust to you.
