How to make Swedish Chanterelle Mushroom Pate:

  • Line a 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan with aluminum foil.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat and melt one tablespoon of butter.
  • Add in the garlic and shallots. Stir and cook till the shallot have softened and turned translucent, say for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove into a mixing bowl and keep aside.
  • Place the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add chanterelle mushrooms and cook till they are tender and golden around the edges, say for about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the parsley and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove the mushrooms and add to the shallots. Let them cool for 5 minutes.
  • Combine together ground pork, egg whites, salt and pepper and mix into the mushrooms. Mix them until evenly blended.
  • Stir in the whipping cream, until it is absorbed by the pork mixture.
  • Line the smoked ham at the bottom and sides of the loaf pan.
  • Place the pork mixture into the pan.
  • Bake in the oven till the pate is no longer pinkish in the center, say for about 1 hour.
  • Remove and slice the loaf.
  • Serve hot or cold.
