CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

MUSHROOM TARRAGON LEMON PATÉ

I wanted to make an easy healthy appetizer for a recent docktails soirée but first I had to run it by my faithful taste tester.  I can always count on Francois to give a reasonably candid evaluation. Well, he loved it.  I meaned LOVED it! And the weirdest part was he thought it was creton, a typical French Canadian rillettes or terrine type of spread made primarily of pork and is quite often very fatty.  Well, this was neither fatty…
