APPETIZERS PATE

Mushroom Chardonnay Pate

MUSHROOM CHARDONNAY PATE

For Steve’s birthday I said I’d make anything he wanted – his own private stash all to himself. It didn’t take long to respond. MUSHROOM PATE! Then Mushroom Pate it was! He ate it plain, on sliced baguette, and even on a toasted ciabatta bun with pickle, mustard and sliced ripe, juicy tomato!

Next time make more!

Makes 1-3/4 cups
