Liver Dumplings

This recipe is from the vintage cookbook- Louisiana's Fabulous Foods. Well it sure doesn't sound fabulous to me. Liver and spinach together in a dumpling? What a pleasant culinary experience mixing that raw chopped liver and the rest of the ingredients.Just imagine the color of these little lumps.

Liver Dumplings
Calf liver, chopped, 1/2 pound
Bread, soaked in water and squeezed dry, 1/2 loaf
Flour, 1 tablespoon
Spinach, fresh, steamed, and chopped, 1/2 pound
Onions, to taste
Parsley, sprig
Eggs, beaten whole 2
Salt and pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper
Saute onions in butter with a bit of parsley. Mix all ingredients and form in small oblong balls. Place in boiling salted water and cook until they float in the water. Then simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Take dumplings out; drain; put in bowl. Heat some butter to make a butter sauce; add chopped onions and brown. Pour over dumplings and serve. 6 to 8 servings. (if you can get anyone to eat them)
