Tuna Pate

Since we are hot and heavy into shower season (the baby and bridal type, not the cleanliness type) I thought I'd share another great party dish. This pate always gets rave reviews no matter where I take it!

Tuna Pate

  • 1 can tuna, drained
  • 8 oz/ 250ml cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pkg ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 tbsp dried minced onion or 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 c fresh parsley, finely diced or 1 tbsp dried parsley (optional)

  1. Mix everything together.
  2. Line a small bowl with plastic wrap, fill with pate, press down firmly and smooth top
  3. Chill for a couple of hours or overnight
  4. Plate by unmolding in the center and surround with crackers OR
  5. Shape pate into whatever you want, a rattle for a baby shower is nice! And chill.

Wheat Thins are the best cracker to go with this pate.
May your showers be short on games and big on wine....
