From my friend Monique ~ this is her recipe for a lighter version.
Mme. Monique's Cretons du Québec
Monique tells us:
"These are sooo light and easy compared to the high fat ones..:)
And they are served as an appetizer..like a pate.With crackers..or a fresh baguette..And a side of your favorite imported or home made mustard.
All done in the microwave!"
1 lb of lean ground pork
1 medium onion chopped
12 soda crackers.. coarsely crushed.
2 garlic cloves minced
1 cup of milk
Salt and pepper
Pinch of ground cinnamon*
Pinch of ground cloves*
I always put more cinnamon.
"Use a microwave safe dish with lid.
Combine all ings. and microwave covered for 15 min..stirring after every 5 mins.
Pack in pretty jars or molds.
Can keep 2 days in refrigerator like this safely.
You can also whirl in the processor..as I did this time..for a more uniform consistency."
