Cheese Pâtés


  • some stale bread
  • 1/2 tablespoonful of hot water
  • 4 tablespoonfuls of grated cheese
  • 1 ounces of butter
  • a few bread-crumbs
  • pepper and salt
  • a little cayenne
  • a few browned bread-crumbs
  • yolk of an egg


Cut the bread in slices of one inch in thickness.

Stamp into rounds with a circular pastry-cutter; scoop out the inside, making little nests of them.

Fry in hot fat (see French Frying); drain them on kitchen paper.

Put them inside the oven to keep hot.

Put the butter and water into a saucepan on the fire to boil.

When boiling, stir in sufficient crumbs to make the mixture stiff.

Beat in the yolk, add pepper, salt, and cayenne; and stir in the cheese.

Pile the mixture on the cases; sprinkle a few browned crumbs over them and be careful to serve quite hot.
