Eggplant with Goat Cheese & Roasted Peppers Pâté & White Bean
An eggplant lover’s dip that gives guests the opportunity for casual, friendly chatter while munching on delicious cheese and pâté? Yes, please!
To create this creamy appetizer, first drain and rinse one can of white beans. Stir the beans into the pâté, mashing slightly until thoroughly combined. Top with crumbled goat cheese, to taste, and heat at 350°F until warm all the way through. Yum.
Truffle Mousse & Gruyère with Caramelized Onions
To create this dinner party sensation, start by halving and slicing one brown or yellow onion. Then, sautéing in a saucepan over medium-high heat with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Once caramelized, remove from heat.
Next, grate eight ounces of Gruyère cheese. In a medium bowl, mix ¾ of the cheese and the Truffle Mousse. Spread into a small baking pan. Top with the caramelized onions, a generous drizzle of honey, and the remainder of the cheese.
Let it bake at 425°F for about 25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and hot. Dig. In.
Smoked Cheddar & Duck Liver and Pork Mousse with Cognac
For a simple, effortless dip that’s as flavorful as it is versatile, look no further than a bold smoked cheddar dip with our decadent Duck Liver and Pork Mousse with Cognac, a winner of the prestigious Good Food Award in San Francisco.
Melt grated smoked cheddar (on the stovetop or in the microwave) and then pour it over an even layer of the mousse. That’s. It. Yes, this recipe is really that simple. Pro tip: Make sure the mousse has been heated up before you pour in the smoked cheddar, and that you have some crackers on hand to really indulge.
If you wish, you can also stir the smoked cheddar into the mousse so it’s evenly distributed throughout the dip.
