You are right, ayersian! I think most Southern folks I know have at least *seen* livermush before. Around here we call it liver pudding and Neese's is the brand of choice. About once or twice a year I have to buy a package to accompany my scrambled eggs for breakfast. And yes, the outside has to be a little crispy with the inside still somewhat creamy.
Teresa, who's birth certificate may be from Kentucky, but who is definitely Southern (but not too redneck)
, you're right on the money. Neese's in the waxed-paper packages are everywhere in the Carolinas. Their hot sausage is also a favorite of mine, if I can't get locally made sausage. I had the same livermush as Buffetbuster
at John's, and each plank was very crispy on the outside and a little creamy inside -- absolutely delicious. Not something I'd order all the time, but boy is it good when visiting as infrequently as I do! Nancy
, please don't think that I'd hold that against you. I do credit you with the Shealy's find and my initial curiosity with Jucy Lucys! As soon as Bruce is done with his New Orleans reports, I've got a 4-parter on Jucy Lucys for the Digest.
