Holiday dinner hosting can get stressful which is why I usually cheat and put together a cheese or charcuterie platter. This time I'm adding a favorite that I've probably made a dozen times: eggplant pâté. I got this recipe years and years ago from Dr.
Marinated Mozzarella from Martha Stewart. Aromatic herbs and a pinch of spicy red-pepper flakes enliven the subtle, creamy flavor of fresh mozzarella. Pair it with your favorite salami, olives, and crackers.
