How to make it
- In a saucepan, heat 1/2 stick of butter just to the sizzle stage, add livers, onion, garlic and wine.
- Cover pan and reduce heat to low and poach the livers 20 minutes or so.
- You want them cooked and moist, not dry. The onions and garlic should be soft but not brown.
- In a food processor, process the livers and pan juices until coarsely chopped.
- Add parsley, eggs, brandy, seasonings, remaining 1/2 stick of butter (softened, not melted) and mayonnaise.
- Process until as smooth as you want.
- Taste and adjust for salt. You want to overseason a little because then it chills the flavors tend to mellow out.
- Chill and serve with crostini and top with minced chives.
