Brandied Country Pâté Recipe
Brandied Country Pâté is another recipe for pâté that I am exploring. As I mentioned in Pâté en Gelee  my iron levels have fallen and I am looking for good recipes for pâté to help raise it. This pâté is a bit more involved than Pâté en Gelee but worth it for the fantastic flavor.
