What Am I, (Mock) Chopped Liver?

I make no bones about the fact that I do not follow the weekly liver rule on the Retro Weight Watchers plan.

So I was pleased to find this recipe for "Mock Chopped Liver" in my 1972 WW Revised Program Cookbook today:

  • 1 can French style string beans
  • onion flakes, to taste
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • salt & pepper
Chop all ingredients together, seasoning to taste.

So what if this spunky dish has absolutely no resemblance or similarity to the real thing? There's no liver, no onions, no schmaltz! It still has the Chutzpah to call itself Chopped Liver anyway.

You gotta respect that, right?

It does sound good. Who wrote those funky weir recipes anyways?

Love the Early American 501 fridgie.

My grandma had that pattern of serving bowls when I was very little.

My mother makes it with canned green peas, sautéed onions and a bit of walnuts and it actually tastes good.
