    sharflan's Note:

    An adaption from a long used recipe, this pate is an excellent appetizer served on Paris or melba toasts. Wine & appetizers this evening? This is a MUST serve! Use a heavy, non coated skillet (no non-stick pans). Cooking time is listed with regard to the stove top cooking. Please Note: Times are approximates. Everyone works in a different manner & speed. A new recipe always seems to require more time!
