Serving pate will not only impress your guests with its fancy reputation, it will also give your low carb, Keto way of eating a satisfying fat boost with your meal.

A French classic, pate gets its creamy richness from real butter. Lots of butter! Not only does that make our Liver Pate smooth and silky, but it also gives it much of its great flavor. If you think you don’t like liver, this buttery pate recipe is a great way to incorporate more organ meats into your diet.

There was a time when nutrient dense organ meats and fats were only served to the upper class. For that reason, I think many people think of pate as “rich people food”. This fantastic spread is actually very affordable and easy to make.

You can use any kind of poultry liver in this recipe. Chicken, turkey, duck and goose all work well. Save the giblets when you cook a whole bird! You can freeze them you until you have enough for a batch of pate. You can also buy chicken and turkey livers in the meat case of most grocery stores.

Pate is best made with milder tasting poultry livers. If you want a recipe for beef liver, check out My Favorite Beef Liver Recipe.

Or if you have family and friends who have bought a bird for a holiday meal but don’t want the giblets, ask them to save them for you. Use the necks to make a batch of homemade bone broth along with the bird carcass after your holiday meal. Don’t let all that great nutrition go to waste!
