Livermush Sandwiches

I know that a lot of you are not fortunate enough to get livermush in your parts of the world, but here in Piedmont North Carolina, it is plentiful. One of the best ways that I like mine is served at a local
place called Tonys. They serve it all the way-grilled crisp livermush with mustard, chopped onion and chili on a hamburger bun.
At home , I like to fry it crisp and eat with mustard and onion.
How do you people like your livermush.

After I read Emsmom's posting yesterday, I went straight home and made me one. Fried crisp, on white bread, just mustard (brown). Normally I eat it fried with grits - good with country-fried potatoes and eggs sunny-side up, too.

It is my impression that livermush is somewhat like scrapple or goetta.
I love scrapple with my eggs and I hope to find some livermush for breakfast when we get to the Ashville area later this month. Anyone got any suggestions of a place to find it?

There is a restaurant adjacent to the NC Farmers Market in Asheville called Moose Cafe. They serve a good breakfast as well as lunch and supper. It is at the entrance to the Farmers Market and can be reached from I 40 or I26 either one

I just had a great livermush sandwich (with onions, coleslaw, and mustard on a burger bun) for lunch at "Glenn's" in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Washed it down with "Cheerwine". I'm getting a taste of all the great NC specialties before I head back to the midwest.

I also had a livermush biscuit (with mustard) at "Don's Char-Grill" in North Wilkesboro yesterday.

I used to eat a 1/2 inch thick grilled slice of a "pink" wurst with mustard and kraut served on a hamburger bun but am unsure what it was called since the last time I ordered it was 30 years ago at a German or Bavarian style lunch spot in NYC called Fritzl's (hope I spelled it right.)  They were kind of like a Zum Zum type coffee shop, and they had a few shops in Manhattan.  
 
My wife was sometimes served Liverwurst at home as a kid which she hated because it was mushy.  She says she never thought of grilling it but it might be good.  Does anyone out there know if Fritzl's was serving me Liverwurst?  I especially liked it with a side of warm potato salad and a pickle slice or two.

If it was a German lunch, probably closer to a braunschweiger.  We make one from my grandfathers recipe, firm and sliceable.  Slice and brown in a cast iron pan with clarified butter to get a beautiful brown crust on both sides, serve on a slice of dark rye with a thin slice of red onion and bavarian style mustard.  Red cabbage or kraut on the side.

I adore livermush.  I've only had it once and it was at a friend's mother's home in Monck's Corner, South Carolina.  It was home made and it was wonderful.  Just ate it with a fork.
 
She made hers in a loaf and she crisped it up in a million year old cast iron pan.
 
She also made biscuits from scratch every morning we were there!

I'm a big fan of it's Eastern NC cousin, Liver Pudding. Neese's Liver Pudding is one of the NC delicacies we always bring back from a visit with the in-laws along with BBQ, air-dried country link sausage, chicken pastry and Cheerwine. Fried up in the morning with eggs and biscuits with molasses. Yum!

It's the dumplings for chicken and dumplings.

The Southern name for chicken and long, flat, noodle-like dumplings. Sometimes called Chicken-n-Pastry but simply "Chicken Pastry" in Eastern NC.

Found a recipe I might make.  Flour and broth.  Why couldn't I think of that?
 
I have been known to roll out refrigerated tube biscuits, cut up and toss in flour and throw into the cooking chicken and it's really good.

Buy frozen noodles from the grocery , faster and you cant tell the difference in taste, plus you will have consistent size noodles .

I remember we had a thread long ago about drop dumplings vs. the rolled flat style, so long ago I don't remember chicken pastry. We were a drop style household in KC.
But then I still love liverwurst too.

Though not livermush or liverwurst I do thoroughly enjoy a pate sandwich every now and then - especially in Paris where every Café and Bistro offers them on a fresh, crisp baguette.  And, typically for c 4 or 5, such are cheap treats!
 
BTW, the tastiest liverwurst I ever had was high in the Andes where Germans have been emigrating since the late 1800's.  "Old School" stuff, very potent and flavorful.
