What is in pate?

Pate should only contain organ meat such as liver, butter, herbs, and seasoning.

I absolutely adore pate but finding a store-bought pate that has no added nasties, no wheat fillers or starchy packers is incredibly difficult and incredibly expensive. Take a look at a pate label next time you’re at the supermarket and see how little meat is actually in there – not much huh?

Organ meat

Why should we eat more organ meats? Both from a budget and nutritional perspective. Organ meats are one of the most nutrient-dense parts of the animal, packed with Vitamin B group, fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, magnesium potassium, copper, selenium …..

Almost every culture places high regard on eating organs and all other parts of the animal, but in Western society, we have shunned it, surrounding organs with modern food snobbery.

Organs are relatively cheap compared to muscle meat, and by eating organs, we are utilizing and respecting more of the animal, putting less pressure on intense farming.

I’m just as squeamish as the next person and have been brought up with a disregard for eating organs, but I can handle them in pate or dice finely within a mince/ground beef dish where they can cheaply bulk up a meal without giving the strong flavorsome organ meat has.

Keto crackers

Want to know how to serve pate now you’re not relying on high-carb crackers? The most convenient is to serve it on slices of cheese or slices of cucumber. Genius!

Alternatively, you could make some wheat-free crackers or some FatHead crackers. Both are incredibly tasty and have no grains, no gluten, no wheat, is low carb and nutritious.

If you want a traditional-style cracker, you can make wheat-free crackers, keto chilli crackers, or even toast slices of almond flour bread.

  • 300 g chicken livers
  • 110 g butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced crushed
  • 1 tbsp cracked black peppercorns
  • salt to taste


  • Prepare the chicken livers by washing them then patting them dry in between kitchen paper.
  • Cut each liver in half , trim and remove the fatty or sinew pieces. I find it easier to use scissors for this, rather than a knife.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan on a low heat and gently fry the garlic until cooked.
  • Add the chicken livers. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the heat then puree with a stick blender using the blade attachment, until smooth.
  • Stir through the peppercorns then season with salt to taste.
  • Pour into ramekin dishes, and refrigerate until set.
  • These will keep for 5 days in the fridge.

  1. Zucchini or yellow summer squash slices would be good too for pate “crackers”. Celery or jícama sticks too. Ive even spread liverwurst on pecan halves if no veggies in the house.
    Does this taste like liverwurst? I looove liverwurst.

    Can I freeze this?

      1. I froze a ramekin of this a few months back and defrosted it the other day. Seemed to be fine 🙂

  3. THANK YOU!! Your garlic pate has just become one of my all-time favourite snack recipes. My family is Portuguese so I grew up eating all sorts of ‘weird’ meat other people found disgusting. Chicken liver was always my absolute favourite organ meat. I love it so much that when I was a kid, my mum used to fry it up with onions and put it into sandwiches for my school lunches. She used to buy pate all the time when I was little too, but it’s been many years since I’ve had liver of any kind. This recipe gave me a great excuse to try and start eating it again and it is one fabulous recipe! So easy to make, so few ingredients and tastes AWESOME! I paired it with the Fathead crackers – yum! And it is crazy cheap to make this, liver for a double batch of the recipe cost me about $3.00 AUD. I love your idea of adding organ meat to mince recipes to help bulk it out. What sort or organ to mince ratio do you use? Or how much organ meat could you add to say a kilo of mince, before the taste of the organ meat is too strong? I’d love to sneak some in to get my son eating it too. Thanks for all you do and another top recipe! 🙂

  4. How many servings does this make?

    1. The nutrition panel shows a serving size as 15g / 1 tbsp but it’s up to you how much you would like to enjoy. The full recipe makes 410g so that would equate to 27 x 15g/tbsp.

  5. Yes you can freeze home made pate. Put in the freezer after 30+ min of cooling. I pour a little more melted butter over it as it cools to give a nice finish. Takes 24 hours or so to defrost and can stay in there for 3 months.

  6. Unbelievale! “Garlic pate” contains 2 cloves of garlic.

  7. 5 stars
    Made this with a whole bulb of garlic (cuz, garlic!!) – amazing!! I can’t stop chowing it down! Also tastes even better the next day! Thanks for the recipe!

  8. 5 stars
    This is so easy and delicious . a great way to get organ meat nutrients . I added more garlic and onion granules. I didn’t bother removing the sinew as I thought that may be some wholesome collagen , it didn’t affect the final consistency.
