This recipe appears in: British Bites: Ploughman's Pate

Ingredients

  • 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

Procedures

  1. 1

    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.
