- Yield:Makes 3/4 cup
- Active time: 10 minutes
- Total time:40 minutes
- 1/2 cup mixed grated semi-firm cheese (sharp cheddar, Wensleydale, Gloucester and Red Leicester are all good ones)
- 1/4 cup soft, high fat cheese (such as brie or camembert) rind removed
- 1 tablespoon marmalade
- 2 tablespoon soft butter
- 1 tablespoon (about 6) finely chopped pickled pearl onions
In a bowl combine grated cheese, soft cheese, marmalade, butter, and pearl onions. Mix with a rubber spatula until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated. Spoon mixture onto a long piece of plastic wrap, then gently form into a tube so that the mixture is fully enclosed in the plastic wrap. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to a few days. Slice the ploughman pâté and serve with toast and some lightly dressed watercress.
