Pate Baked Potato

I make quite a lot of pâté recipes for this site, so if you read my recipes often you’ve probably seen some before. I even wrote an article about why Pâté should be used at your next party. A proper pâté is quite a versatile ingredient, adding great meaty flavor to anything it is added to. For this pate baked potato recipe, I am using pâté Bretonne, also known as Terrine Bretonne. This is a standard pork based terrine that adds a touch of caramel for sweetness and color.

Other than the pâté this is really just a basic baked potato recipe. More importantly would be the recipe where I explain how to make the pâté at home, but you could easily buy it in most grocery stores in Europe, or online in America.

Pate Baked Potato Ingredients

100 grams Terrine Bretonne (pâté); or a pâté of your choosing

6-8 small-medium Gold Potatoes

3-4 tbsp Butter

1 Shallot

Salt and Pepper; to taste

Pate Baked Potato Instructions

1. Start by boiling your potatoes in a pot for about 15-20 minutes, or until fork tender. Before placing them in the water, stab them with a fork to make a few holes. Preheat your oven to 175°C or about 350°F.

2. While the potatoes are boiling, take your pâté (either store bought or homemade) and place it in a bowl. Add in one minced shallot and mash together.

3. When the potatoes are done boiling, remove them from the water and slice them in half. Scoop out the insides. You can mash the insides with the pâté if you want, or save them for some mashed potatoes another time. Add a teaspoon of butter to the potato and fill with a heaping helping of pâté.
