Is liverwurst (or more specifically, Braunschweiger) the poor man's pate? I used to eat it as a kid, my wife and grandmother still love it. We regularly visit one of the area German meat markets to get all kinds of fantastic wursts.
I do reserve the right to decline any head cheese or blood sausage passed my way.
