I am lucky enough to have gadgets and used the food processor for this. Peel the onion and chop in the processor, tip into a bowl. Chop your bread roughly and pulse the processor until it has a bread crumb consistency. It doesn’t have to be superfine or anything, we just don’t want huge pieces of bread in the finished faggots. Tip the crumbs into the mixing bowl.
If you don't have a processor, chop the onion really small using a large sharp knife. Then do the same to the bread. Just keep chopping, the bread will break down into smaller and smaller pieces. Tip into the mixing bowl
Now chop the liver. Process it for just a few seconds, we don't want to puree it. Tip into the mixing bowl. If you have no gadgets, chop the liver on the chopping board with your biggest sharp knife. Just keep chopping until it is in small pieces
We now need to season. I added a tsp of salt and lots of fresh ground pepper. I wanted the taste of sage, but don’t have any in the garden at present so I added three heaped tblsps of sage and onion stuffing to the bowl and squished it all together with my hands.
Then I got out a baking tray and lined it with that reusable silicone stuff and used my hands to make generous balls of mixture. As you can see, I got 15 balls, making 3 each for 5 portions.
Put the faggots in a single layer in an ovenproof dish
Make up the gravy granules. Cover the faggots with the gravy and bake in a medium oven for about an hour.

The nutrition doesn't include the gravy as the calculator that I use can't find it
