Literally, "meat and cheese". A neat morsel, perfect with an icy cold beer.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • goose liver pate or ground ham

  • 2 ounces goose liver pate
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon steak sauce

  • 2 ounces country style ground ham
  • 1 teaspoon steak sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup


  1. FOR THE PASTRY: Cream butter and cream cheese together until well blended. Add the flour and mix until smooth. Chill pastry thoroughly (overnight if possible).
  2. Using a small portion of pastry at a time, roll pastry about 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface; cut out rounds with a 2-inch cookie cutter.
  3. Spoon a rounded 1/4 teaspoonful of filling onto half of each round. Fold dough over filling and press edges together with a fork. Transfer to baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 400°F 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot. About 9 dozen appetizers.
  5. FOR THE FILLING: Mix thoroughly goose liver pate, Worcestershire sauce and 1 teaspoon steak sauce. For the HAM FILLING; mix ground country style ham, steak sauce and 1 teaspoon ketchup. (Each filling is enough for about 4 1/2 dozen appetizers.).
  6. NOTE: This pastry will keep for several weeks if wrapped tightly in moisture vapor-proof material and stored in the refrigerator.
