Twice as Nice

Today's recipe brings together two favorites.  No, not spaghetti and meatballs.  Not peanut butter and chocolate.  Not cake and ice cream.  Give up?  It's liver and anchovies!  This elegant cuisine won't appeal to everyone, but to a select group, it's quite a treat.  Allow me to illustrate:

And not only is this recipe two tasty treats in one, with its 4 egg yolks, it will nicely pump up that cholesterol!


5 cooked chicken livers
3 T. anchovy paste
3 T. butter
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
4 egg yolks
8 slices hot toast
1-1/3 c. cream or evaporated milk

Make a paste of livers and anchovy paste, add butter, pepper, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 egg yolk.  Spread on toast and place under preheated broiler for one minute.  Make a sauce by cooking remaining 3 egg yolks, salt and cream in a double boiler.  Serves 8 [people without taste buds, or 96 with taste buds]
