    Sharon123's Note:

    This makes for delicious hors d'oeuvres or a wonderful sandwich on a baguette or whole-grain bread! This also makes a great spread for sandwiches, crackers, or just stand in front of the refrigerator with a spoon! Adapted from Moosewood Restaurant New Classics cookbook. Enjoy! Recipe hails from England and France.

      Very good. I used low fat cheeses to lower the fat content. I also threw in a minced garlic clove to give it a little kick. Thanks, Sharon, for sharing this recipe.
