Liverwurst & onion Sun, 06/25/06 9:02 PM (permalink)
One of my top favorites (I was raised on a farm exposed to German-Russian cooking) is the liverwurst (or braunsweiger) with onion sandwich. I find it is best with mayo on seeded rye or old country dark or black bread. The onion can be white‚ Spanish red, or yellow, but I prefer Vidalia for its sweetness, and it should be thick slices – but some folks like the hotter onion effect. I also like French's mustard on one slice of bread and mayo on the other, preferably Hellman's (not the lite or fat-free stuff). Eat this sandwich with a glass of cold sweet milk in the evening, and it will help you sleep like a baby. Don't plan on close contact with another human being, though, unless the other has also partaked of the same sandwich! :)

    I love liverwurst sandwiches with onion (not the sweet), mayonnaise and mustard on rye. No milk, though. Give me a good ale.

      I have not had one of those in years. I like it on rye with mustard and mayo. I can't do the onion anymore (heart burn). I think you can buy it at the grocery.

        Ernie,
        Now you've done it. I'm gonna have to try livermush and onion (Vidalia is my choice) as per your example. I'll get back to y'all when I manage to execute it, or mayhap myself in the bargain.

          No mayo for me thank you, a nice yellow mustard however and Im in. Rye or pumpernicel or even a good round roll, a slice of onion (something with a little bite) Ive even chopped onion and mixed with sweet relish.

            I love them too. I like Rye and mustard with a slice of a big vidalia onion. Ort, I eat a liver pudding (South Carolina version of liver mush) and onion sandwich alot. I do the same as I do the liverwurst. Rye bread and mustard. It's wonderful.

              Liverwurst, grainy mustard, onion, rye bread. Add a little bit of sliced sour pickle. Hard to get a kiss after that though.

                    Dear Ort. Carlton-(or anyone else who knows)

                    Is livermush analogus to liverwurst?

                    thanks
                    ailsa

                    and oh- I love liverwurst and onion on thick sliced rye bread. Sometimes I will add tomato.

                    My mom likes hers with hot mustard.

                      I love it on Jewish rye bread, white onion slice and Weber's horseradish mustard with a kosher garlic pickel on the side.

                        When I was much younger, I lived around the corner from the "German section"
                        on East 86th street in Manhattan. On Saturdays I would walk over to Schaller & Weber for a liverwurst and American cheese sandwich on a crusty New York "hard roll" with strong mustard, pickle and a bottle of "Yoo Hoo". They used that wonderful old German style liverwurst in the natural casing. it was like a pate.
                        Mmmmmmmmmm. That was good eating!

                            The only similarity between liverwurst and livermush are the first five letters.

                            From the Christian Science Monitor:

                            When you learn what goes into livermush, it doesn't get any better, since it's a mixture of pig liver (at least 30 percent, by law), head parts, and cornmeal.

                              On the rare occasions i get back to my old Northeast Philadelphia eighborhood, I stock up at a store called Riegers in the Fox Chase section.
                              I get several varieties of their wurst, some black bread, good grainy mustard, red onion, and begin construction.Sometimes I alternate varieties.
                              good ale goes well

                                  Michael,
                                  Thanks immeasurably for inserting that story. I had never seen it before, and can use it for background when I manage to get to Shelby for their festival later on this year.
                                  Close kin (culinarily speaking) to livermush is the liver pudding found in South Carolina. The leading makers of this appear to be Harvin's in Sumter and Counts' Sausage in Prosperity. The difference is that rice, a favorite of South Carolineans, is substituted for the cornmeal used as the grain adjunct in livermush.
                                  This factor may indeed explain why Budweiser -- a "rice beer" -- leads in popularity in South Carolina; Busch -- a "corn beer" -- lags far behind. No meal in the Low Country is served without rice, and old habits -- this one dating to Colonial times when rice was widely grown in S. C. -- are hard to break.
                                  Mushing Right Along, Ort. Carlton in Lovely Athens, Georgia.

                                    Love these sandwiches.. But no condiments (mayo or mustard). I just spread the liverwurst on on black bread, some chopped onions and a splash of salt.

                                      I like a toasted bagel with cream cheese a thick slice of sweet onion and a thin slice of liverwurst. We have them for breakfast at work on special occasions. We spread out the fixin's and everyone makes their own. A breath mint is a nice chaser.

                                        This thread really got me thinking. Haven't had Liverwurst in years and now have a huge craving. As a kid, Mom would make it with (gasp) Jewish rye, Mayo, and Katsup.
                                        Now, I think I'd prefer as stated above - Good Brown bread, spicy mustard, and thick onion. Maybe a Pabst Blue Ribbon!

                                          the only time i use yellow mustard is
                                          when making liverwurst and onion on rye.

                                            Now, I think I'd prefer as stated above - Good Brown bread, spicy mustard, and thick onion. Maybe a Pabst Blue Ribbon!

                                            What other kind of rye would anyone use to make a liverwurst sandwich?

                                              I use "black bread" which is a Latvian Rye. Heavy and darker rye.. Holds the liverwurst real good, along with that sour dough flavor... Also real good with some butter and tomatos, onions, salt and pepper. Just dont cut the bread too thick, otherwise it overpowers the taste. (I slice mine around 3/8ths of an inch thick)

                                                Plump up some dark raisins in hot water and add them in the sandwich.
                                                Don't use raisin bread (that has cinnamon) I just meant soft dark raisins.

                                                    Thats my favorite sandwich, I like it with a spicy mustard though. Now we can start a fiery debate and discuss who has the best liverwurst.

                                                      I don't know about the "fiery" part, but I really like Boar's Head liverwurst. And add my vote for dark rye, onion and mustard. Perhaps a slice of muenster cheese too.
