The truth is that we all want to be the one to bring that fabulous appetizer to the party, but we don’t always have the time to make it. Here is recipe which shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to make and will deliver raves every time.
10 oz. Smoked Turkey or Smoke Duck Breast
1/2 cup organic Half and Half
6 oz. Butter, softened
2 Tbsp finely chopped Shallot
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
2 Tbsp fresh, finely chopped Tarragon
Cut turkey or duck meat into small pieces. Put the meat into the bowl of Food Processor with the Knife Blade and pulse. Switch to “On” position and run the machine until the meat appears to puree. With machine running, slowly add the cream through the Feed Tube. Now add Butter, which has been cut into 8-10 small pieces, one piece at a time to blend.
Stop the machine and add the Shallots, Tarragon, Smoked Paprika. Pulse to combine. Add S& P to taste and add add more spices, if desired.
Turn the mousse into serving dish and chill well. Allow to come to room temperature prior to serving. Serve with crudites and thinly sliced French Bread.
