I tweaked this recipe a bit, and it still turned out delicious. Here's what I did:
- Sauteed the onions in butter
- Mixed dried sage, cloves, cayenne, cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced scallions, Dijon mustard and apple cider together in a bowl. = the spread
- Took sliced bread and put the spread on it. Topped it with the sauteed onions. And then broiled it until the spread was just bubbling.
- Topped it with smoked ham and served.
Perhaps next time I should try making it per the recipe -- as a pate. I can see this as being a nice hors d'oeuvres for a party.
