Minuta alla Visconti (Chickens' Livers)


  • 2 fowls' livers
  • butter
  • cream
  • 1 tablespoonful of grated cheese
  • a dust of cayenne
  • toast
  • 1/2 ounce of butter
  • 1 egg well beaten up
  • 1 tablespoonful of cheese


Braize fowls' livers in butter, then pound them up, and mix with a little cream, cheese and cayenne.

Spread this rather thickly over small squares of toast, and keep them hot whilst you make a custard with butter, egg, and cheese. Stir it over the fire till thick and then spread it on the hot toast. Serve very hot. This makes a good savoury.
