    This rustic pâté is quick, easy, and a classic start to many a Passover feast. Though we finish it with a hint of sherry, it tastes just like the one Bubbe used to make (and you can choose to leave the sherry out).

    What to buy: Schmaltz (rendered chicken fat) can be found in specialty markets and at Jewish delis. If you can’t find it, kosher-for-Passover vegetable oil can be substituted, but it’s far from traditional.

    Game plan: We liked this best served warm, but it can also be made up to a day in advance and served cold or at room temperature.

    Instructions

    1. 1Heat the broiler to high and arrange a rack in the upper third. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and arrange livers in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and broil until lightly browned on top, about 2 minutes. Turn, sprinkle the other side with salt, and broil until the second side is browned and the livers are completely cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove to a cutting board to cool slightly.
    2. 2Heat a medium frying pan over medium-high heat and add oil. Once the oil shimmers, add half of the chopped onion to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft but not browned, about 4 minutes. Remove to a medium bowl.
    3. 3Finely chop reserved chicken livers and add to the cooked onion. Add remaining ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined. Serve warm or chilled with matzo crackers.
