This was a huge hit at a family function. I went from about 1 ½ lbs to a ramekin in less than two hours. My sister in law commented how good it was. I asked her, “Do you know how much this cost?” She shook her head bracing for a high number. I said, “believe it or not, less than five dollars”. Yes, a pound and a half of “pate” for less than five dollars, hence the name.
