This was one of the appetisers we had for our Christmas dinner. Very simple to make and very tasty, I didn't use as much cayenne pepper as the recipe called for, probably on 1/4 - 1/2 a tsp actually, but it still had a bite to it and everyone loved it.

A very nice pate! I did not have thyme, actually I went to the store for all the ingredients, guess what I forgot...what good is a list?? ...Anyways, I used a little garlic power instead, it was very yummy! I will be serving it with pita bread cut into triangles for a yummy appetizer. Thanks for a very good recpe.
