This is one of my Fav Appetizers, I do believe it is Japanese in origin but i have had it i Japanese,Chinese,and Korean restaurants.

Making it at home is Simple and Easy.

You will need:

1 Lb Bacon(Whatever your favorite brand is i would avoid Maple Flavored bacon though.)

1 lb Liver (Normally Chicken livers are used, but if you cant find them Beef and Pork Liver will also work but requires cutting)

1 Large Onion(again what ever is your favorite type onion i have even used Red Onions)

1 box toothpicks

Grease or Lard(again preference thing Any cooking oil or grease will work)


Use a Sauce pan and Fill it half way with grease(a Deep fryer works AWESOME if you have one) Get the grease good and hot (medium-high heat)

Peal your onion, and cut it into petals(should look like a little boat) Put either 1 chicken liver or one cube of beef or pork liver on the onion and Wrap it in bacon Then push tooth pick all the way through to hold it all together.

Deep fry until completely done, the bacon should be a dark brown but not burnt and should be crunchy.

Serve with either Sweet and Sour sauce or Spicy Asian Mustard.

YUMMY!

I also then learned that the yellow crap powder sold in spice bottles by the big food companies like Lawry's and such is by no means real indian curry. Once I tried the REAL stuff I started to really like indian food.
Oh ya i know i like the Thai curry's(which are more like hot sauces than what we think of as a curry). There is an Indian Couple that own a local motel(not trying to stereotype so please dont take it that way) I cant even walk in the Door because what ever they cook for themselves the Smell just instantly makes me sick, i assumed it was Indian Curry, Maybe It is the Yellow Americanized Curry dunno all i know is it Stinks and the Smell stays their ALL THE TIME!

WOW what great recipes!!

We make a very simple Chili Con Queso. It is good as a dip, as a topping for vegetables, meat or any way you can think of using it.

1-small onion (I like to us white onions) diced, placed in a microwave safe dish with butter and diced up garlic . Saute until onion is partially cooked, stirring often.

1 large can tomatoes mashed up or diced small or if I use tomatoes I put up I use a quart jar or 2 pint jars, add a large pinch of baking soda and mix well.

Add to the above items 1 small box of Mexican velveta cut up in pieces and a couple of handfuls of grated cheddar or longhorn cheese (the cheese I use the most has yellow and white cheese mixed together). (Sorry, I don't measure...I add based on how thick I want the queso to be ). Microwave until the cheese is melted, stirring often.

Most Indian food in restaurants are really unhealthy compared to normal home cooking...

buddhabackpacker I bet you could mail-order the spices. I get them in such big bags from the indian grocery they'll last 2 years. Well, maybe not if I keep cooking so much indian food.

salt/pepper to taste

Brown the beef and drain excess grease. return to skillet and add soup, green beans, garlic, salt/pepper. stir together well. pour mix into a 8X8 pan. cover with a layer of tater tots. sprinkle with season salt (optional). bake at 350 for 15-18 mins.
I like that casserole myself, but with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese melted/browned on top.
