Pate En Croute (HARD, VERY HARD)

Alright Chef Fan’s I will warn you from the onset of this recipe, This is a very hard complicated recipe but done correct it is wonderful! There are many parts to this recipe and even a video to help you out. We are going to start out the recipe with the Dough and then move onto how to actually put it all together. You will find the recipe for forcemeat linked down below and you can use any type of forcemeat you would like to make for this recipe. You are also going to want to thing about what you want to inlay through out the Pate En Croute. This can be other cuts or cubes of meat, nuts, mushrooms, whatever you want really. You are also going to need prosciutto to wrap around the forcemeat, this creates a moisture barrier that will help with the fat bubbling out. Last But not least I wish you luck!
