Mushroom Pate

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Susiecat too

This is a *very* simple, mild mushroom pate. You can use whatever kind of mushrooms you prefer, or an assortment. Just so long as they are fresh, never canned. It is my attempt to replace chopped liver, a snack treat served in my family for all previous generations, but now out of favor due to health concerns.

i reduced the oil to about 1.5 Tbs and replaced the egg with 3 Tbs light cream cheese. also added 2 cloves garlic and about 1 tsp each of dill, oregano, and basil. kind of a mix of several mushroom pate recipes but i'm liking it!
