Cheese Garlic and Herb Pate

Ingredients

  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup soft cheese (soft cheese of your choice) Cream cheese works well
  • 2 tbs of mixed herbs (parsley, chives, oregano, basil)
  • 1 and 3/4 cups sharp Colby cheese, grated
  • pepper to taste
  • 4-6 slices of white bread, crusts removed.
  • mixed salad greens and cherry tomatoes to serve
  • ground paprika and fresh herb sprigs for garnish
  • Melt the butter in a small saute pan and gently cook the garlic and scallions for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Let cool.
  • Beat the soft cheese in a large mixing bowl until smooth, then add the garlic and scallions. Stir in the herbs and mix  well.
  • Add the Colby cheese and work the mixture together to form a stiff paste. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • To make the Melba toast, toast the slices of bread on both sides, then cut off the crusts.
  • Cut through the slices horizontally to make very thin slices.
  • Cut into triangles and then lightly broil the un toasted sides until golden.
  • Arrange the mixed salad greens on 4 serving plates, with the cherry tomatoes.
  • Place the cheese pate on top and sprinkle with a little paprika.
  • Garnish with sprigs of fresh herbs and serve with the Melba toast.
