Ingredients
  • ½ pound (250 g) Canadian cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ pound (125 g) Canadian aged cheddar, crumbled
  • ½ cup (125 mL) sliced pitted green olives
  • ½ cup (125 mL) grilled red peppers, diced
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) chopped fresh chives or 2 teaspoons (10 mL) dried chives
  • ½ teaspoon (2 mL) dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon (2 mL) dried thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper
Directions
  1. In a bowl, combine Canadian cream cheese, aged cheddar cheese, olives, red peppers, chives, rosemary and thyme.

  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Place a large sheet of plastic wrap on work surface. Spread cheese mixture on wrap, enclose and roll to form a cylinder.

  4. Twist plastic wrap ends in opposite directions until mixture is as compacted as possible.

  5. Freeze for at least 2 hrs or until terrine can be cut easily into slices.

  6. Use a serrated knife to cut. Slice terrine, preferably while frozen, and serve as canapés on whole-grain crackers or vegetables, or as a first course along with a salad.
