Recipe for Liver Pate Easy to Serve

Regarding serving, this liver pate is easy as well. However, if it’s fresh from the fridge, you’ll want to include a small serving knife to cut it. Until it gets closer to room temperature, it will require a bladed utensil. Think of how a stick of butter acts in a similar fashion. After it softens, it’s still considered a “spread” and not a “dip” so a serving utensil is still used.
