2 tablespoons butter

Liver from any fowl will answer for this recipe. Boil the liver until very tender with an onion and a little salt. Place in a chopping bowl with a hard-cooked egg, parsley, grated onion, pepper, salt, and a dash of Worcester, a little lemon juice, paprika and a little melted butter. Chop all very fine, serve on buttered toast cut in fancy shapes. This makes a very nice sandwich paste or can be served as an appetizer.

Spread thin slices of white bread with mayonnaise, then with nasturtium blossoms, and roll.
