Do you like to eat sandwiches? I do. And if you eat a lot of them, sometimes you want something else than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. But if cold cuts and cheese are not on your list of choices, you don't have much else to choose between. That is where this pâté comes in. It is perfect on bread for sandwiches, on crackers for hors d'oeuvres, and anywhere else you would like a savory pate.
It is not nut free, neither is it soy free, but if you can eat those two things, this spread will be a good bet for your next sandwich. It might even become your favorite go-to spread! By the way, what is your favorite spread for sandwiches?
