These are emulsion-type sausages that are usually water-cooked. The cooked product may be lightly smoked at the end of the cook cycle. Smoked bacon ends are used in the product to produce a smoked flavor.

Optional Additions

You can add different items to the liver sausage for variety's sake. For onion liver just saute chopped onions. For goose liver add sauted onions and shelled pistachio (raw if possible).
