Pâté is something I’ve been having since I was young and I always would have it for breakfast on toast with slices of cucumber which I think is a great addition as it gives it a freshness and also a nice crunch. Dean thought this was a little strange at first but he tried it and said he quite liked it that way!
The best thing about making pâté is that it’s so easy to do! Throw everything in a blender and away you go!
Even though pâté is not the most healthy option (it contains rather a lot of butter) a little won’t hurt. I have used light butter to try make it a little healthier. All the ingredients are Christmas based and came together really well. You can put whatever you want in your pâté as long as you have the butter and liver – all the other ingredients are up to you. If you want to change the brandy to port and the orange to cranberries and there you go – another type of pâté!
It’s very easy to make and great to have on Christmas morning or as a starter. If there’s any left on the night have some with your Christmas buffet if you have room!
