No Baking Turkey Pate

When I was a child we loved pate – Pasztet bought in stores. Unfortunately this meat bread spread had and still have a long list of low quality ingredients: the worst parts of meat, water, thickeners, preservatives and who knows what else. Nowadays children still love meat pates, so I decided to prepare home made pasztet using good quality ingredients. It worked! My daughter approved it, I’m happy:) I decided to go for no baking version of pate made of turkey leg. I found recipe for No Baking Turkey Pate on Polish culinary website:, which I like very much.

Bread with No baking turkey pate served on rye bread with tomato.


  • 400 g/ 0,9 lb turkey leg meat
  • 100 g/ 0,2 lb turkey liver
  • 100 g/ 0,2 lb smoked bacon
  • onion
  • 2 tbs butter
  • salt & pepper, sweat paprika, marjoram

Dice meat into 1 cm cubes. Cut liver and bacon, cut onion. Fry onion on small amount of oil, set aside. Place meats on the frying pan, season with salt, pepper, paprika and marjoram. Fry for 5 minutes, add a cup of water and simmer for another 7 minutes. Keep the meat wet, so that the pate was juicy. Keep the juices for later, you may need them later on, to get a perfect consistency.

Once it’s cooled, grind meats twice or 3 times, if needed. I also blended meat at the end, because I felt that the texture is not enough smooth.

Add butter. This is a magic ingredient that makes difference:)

Your own home made No Baking Turkey Pate is ready! Smacznego!
