Dijon Chicken Liver Pate

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


3 cups

I first served this chicken liver pate at a holiday party quite a few years ago, and it was a real hit. The special flavoring comes from cream cheese, mustard and pork sausage. —Katherine Wells, Brodhead, Wisconsin


  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound chicken livers, cut in half
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon each minced chives, dried parsley flakes, tarragon and marjoram
  • Assorted crackers


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage and onion until meat is no longer pink; remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. In the drippings, cook chicken livers over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain; cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Place chicken livers, milk and mustard in a blender or food processor; cover and process. Add sausage mixture, cream cheese and seasonings; cover and process until nearly smooth.
  3. Pour into a 3-cup serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Serve with crackers.
