Chicken Liver Paté
12 tablespoons butter
1 tsp. lemon juice
Saute onion in 8 tbsps. of butter, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and chicken livers and cook just until liver is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add remaining butter, seasoned salt, lemon juice, pepper and cayenne, stir until butter melts. Divide mixture into four parts. In electric blender, at high speed, blend the mixture one part at a time, adding 2 of the egg quarters to each part. Empty into a bowl as each part is blended. Stir nuts into entire mixture and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Shape into ball on sheet of waxed paper or foil. Wrap well and refrigerate overnight. Serve with crackers. Yield: 2-1/2 cups, or enough for about 50 crackers.
Eggplant and Tomato Casserole
1/4 cup salad oil
1 tsp. salt
large fry pan, heat oil; add onions, mushrooms and green pepper. Sauté
over medium heat until vegetables are limp, 5 minutes. Stir in
eggplant, tomatoes, salt and parsley. Cover and simmer slowly until
eggplant is tender (25 minutes), stirring often. Uncover and increase
heat, if needed, to reduce liquid. Meanwhile combine Parmesan and
Mozzarella with eggs; spoon half eggplant mixture into 2-1/2 quart
casserole and top with half the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with
cheese. Bake uncovered in 375° oven for 25 minutes. If prepared ahead
and cold, bake 45 minutes.
Shrimp Au Gratin
1-1/2 cups shrimp, cooked
1 tbsp. finely chopped
Alternate layers of cleaned, cooked shrimp, white sauce and 1/2 cup cheese in greased baking dish. Sprinkle with parsley and remaining cheese, then with buttered crumbs. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until crumbs are browned. Serves 4.
