Ham and Braunschweiger Pate


"Here's a spread that is always a tremendous hit at parties. The flavors of the braunschweiger and spreadable ham are the main attractions in this topping for breads and crackers. The chilled mold may be frosted with softened cream cheese, then sprinkled with parsley for added attractiveness."
