15-Minute Chicken Liver Pate

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Jedley

Who says sophisticated hors d'oeuvres have to be complicated? This pate takes about 15 minutes to prepare, yet has the flavor of centuries of Old World tradition. Can be made several days ahead of time.

Super easy, utterly smooth and yummy. I was surprised at how sweet it is. I used about a half-teaspoon each of the herbs (dried). I'll make this again.
