Crostini con Fegato di Pollo e Salvia (Toast with Chicken Liver and Sage)

Recipe from: Angela's Italian Organic Oregano
Servings: 6

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
12 medium fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced, plus 1 teaspoon chopped sage
½ cup finely chopped red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
8 ounces (about 1 cup) chicken or turkey livers, finely chopped
¼ cup Madeira wine
½ teaspoon coarse salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 baguette slices, toasted
additional whole sage leaves (optional)

Line plate with paper towels. Heat the olive oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced sage; sauté until crisp, about 30 seconds. Using slotted spoon, transfer sauteed sage to paper towels. Add onion to same skillet; sauté until golden, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, chopped liver, and 1 teaspoon chopped sage. Stir until liver is no longer red, about 3 minutes. Increase heat to high, add Madeira wine, and cook until wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Divide liver mixture among baguette slices. Top with sauteed sage. Serve crostini on bed of fresh sage leaves, if desired.
