Greek Chicken Liver Pie

An oldie, but a goodie!

Welcome to the ya'll to the grand opening of Granny's Down Home Southern Cooking!

I hope ya'll enjoy my first mouth watering, yummy in your tummy recipe.

One thing we love to eat in the South ya'll is chicken livers. I love mine fried, but my grandson loves to fish with them ya'll!

I created this recipe because I do love my fried chicken livers, green onions and feta cheese.

This recipe is simple and calls for only a few ingredients. It's easy to fix and yummy in your tummy too!

For this recipe use a 9 x 13 baking dish.

  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 1 container Chicken livers
  • 1/2 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 scallion or green onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach
  • olive oil
  • 1 small container feta cheese
  • tomato basil seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove

Is your mouth watering yet? I sure hope so ya'll...


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Drain chicken livers(you can rinse them off), coat with tomato basil seasoning. Add 4 tablespoons olive oil and chopped garlic clove to skillet and sauté chicken livers until done. Remove from skillet, do not drain. Place in a bowl covered with plastic wrap and set in refrigerator until chilled(about 5 minutes) Chop chilled chicken livers into bite size pieces.
  • Next, tear the spinach from stems, discard stems.
  • Chop scallion or green onion into small pieces(use all of the scallion or green onion.)
  • Mix vegetables together and sauté in 2 tbsp. olive oil until spinach is wilted. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon.
  • Add half of feta cheese to chopped chicken livers, mix throughly.
  • Toss sautéed vegetables into liver mixture.
  • Lightly coat baking pan with olive oil and tomato basil seasoning, place liver mixture evenly into baking pan.
  • Remove crescent dough from can, roll rectangles into thin sheets.
  • Place enough pieces of dough to cover mixture. Lightly coat dough with olive oil-tomato basil seasoning. Bake 15 minutes,or until crust is golden brown, remove from oven, sprinkle remaining feta cheese on top and place under broiler until cheese melts.

Greek Dipping Sauce for Pita 
  • 8 oz. Greek yogurt-strained
  • 1 tablespoon tomato basil seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • Whisk together, serve chilled.

Serves 6-8
In the South we don't count calories ya'll, so dig in and enjoy! Serve with pita bread or pita chips for a tasty Mediterranean treat with a little touch of the South thrown in.

Italian Salmon Patties with Red Sauce

Okay, this Southern granny has lost her mind! Y'all are probably thinking what's the deal with Italian salmon patties and red sauce?

I love salmon patties, but it's a task just getting my picky family to eat healthy. Canned salmon is a staple in my pantry and I'm always trying to come up with new ways to serve this yummy in your tummy fish. Italian salmon patties with red sauce is a brand new recipe I created and let my tell you my picky family love it and y'all's will too! It's so yummy in your tummy good.

These yummy salmon patties are easy to make with just a few ingredients you have on hand in your pantry.

What's great about this salmon mixture, y'all can make ahead and chill before using. Also, if you don't want to cook the salmon, y'all can use it in a salad or serve on crostini.

Salmon Patties:

1 15 oz. canned salmon
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic-minced
1 tsps. fresh oregano leaves-chopped
1 tsps. lemon pepper
1 tsps. fresh chives-chopped
oil for cooking

Drain salmon and flake, place in mixing bowl. Add bread crumbs and flour, mix well. Fold in sour cream and minced garlic, mix well. Add your seasonings.  Y'all want to make sure you have a nice form, like when making a meatloaf.

To form the patties, scoop the mixture into a lightly sprayed ice-cream scoop and roll in flour, flatten the patty. Heat oil in skillet and add 2-3 patties at a time to hot oil(y'all don't want to crowd the skillet). Cook on both sides until golden brown, drain on paper towel, serve with red sauce. Makes about 6-8(enough to feed y'all's hungry crowd). While the salmon patties are still hot, sprinkle with oregano.

Red Sauce:
1/2 cup whole sour cream
1/2 cup fire roasted tomatoes-with liquid
1 clove garlic
1 tsps. fennel

Blend all ingredients in blender until well mixed. You can warm or cold. Y'all can add more to taste.

Happy eatin' y'all!

Hey y'all, here's where I'm sharing some yummy in your tummy goodness!

Sweet and Sour Coleslaw

I learned to make coleslaw from my mama ya'll. Well, mama's probably rolling over in her grave because I deviated from the traditional family recipe. Mama used Kraft mayo and seasoning salt in her recipe, but I love the taste of sour cream and fennel seeds.

2 cups green and red cabbage-shredded
2 chopped green onions
1/4 cup  red wine vinegar
6 oz. pineapple juice
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fennel or poppy seeds

Combine wet ingredients, whisk well, add fennel seeds, whisk, add to cabbage and chopped onions, toss well. Serve chilled.

You can make ahead and let chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy this yummy in your tummy coleslaw ya'll!

I'm partying here y'all!

Hawaiian Baked Beans

Hawaiian Baked Beans
Being Southern we love our baked beans and BBQ. This is a simple recipe I developed about 25 years ago and a can't wait to dig in  family favorite. I hope this will become your family's favorite baked beans ya'll. 

I know a lot of good Southern bakes beans recipes call for pork 'n beans, but I like to use navy beans, drained and rinsed.

1 (16-ounce) can chunk pineapple (reserve juice)
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1 cup ketchup
1 1/2 packed dark brown sugar
1 cup plus 6 oz. pineapple juice

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
 Whisk your wet ingredients together first, add brown sugar, mix until a golden brown color, add pineapple chunks. Combine with navy beans, mix well. Place in aluminum pan.
