Chickenliver Pate with Cognac in Thermomix

Pate is a very easy appetizer to make yourself and quite quick.  Especially if you need to be careful about sodium and additives.  I have always been nervous as to what goes into store bought pates? You can hide anything in there as long as you grind it up enough.What a thought? The only thing is the colour of the pate isn't as vibrant as store bought.  In this case there is butter sealing in the top so you can't see it.  I am also going to use this to make the Vietnamese bun called Bahn Mi.  I know they use a pate but I don't know what type of meat is in it.  I have always been afraid to ask.

170g onion
450g chicken livers cleaned
