Sherry Cheese Pâté


As I mentioned last week, I’ve recently been invited to several different parties and drop-ins. Fall is a really busy time.

Since I’ve needed to bring hors d’oeuvres with me to these events, I’ve had to dig around in my recipe box a bit. After all, some of the same people are at each of these events. (Which is very tacky of them. If there were different people at each event, I could just make a huge batch of cheese olivettes, freeze them, and use them at each party!) :)

RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]_thumb[20]So here’s a recipe from deep in my recipe box. It’s an old crowd-pleaser, sherry cheese pâté.

Even its name is mysterious, which makes preparing it very fitting for a mystery writer. This is not pâté. Not even close! But it is good. Oh, and quick and easy. A must for me right now. The taste of sherry in this spread seems to go over well at parties.

Sherry Cheese Pâté

2 3-oz packages softened cream cheese
1 C grated sharp cheddar
1 T dry sherry
1/2 t curry powder
1/4 t salt
1 8oz jar mango chutney
2 green onions, chopped

Mix cream cheese, cheddar, sherry, curry, and salt together, thoroughly. Spread the mixture on a serving plate. Chill. Spread the chutney on the top of the mixture and sprinkle green onions on the top. Serve with crackers.

Enjoy! And hope you’ve all got some fun fall events on your calendar.
