"It's impressive and somewhat different," says Wolfgang Puck of this savory terrine, one of his home-entertaining staples. He prepares a mixture of sautéed carrots, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and eggs, then layers it with sautéed broccoli rabe before baking.

  1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for coating
  2. 2 pounds carrots, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  3. 1/2 cup water
  4. Salt
  5. Freshly ground pepper
  6. 6 ounces broccoli rabe—thick stems discarded, the rest chopped
  7. 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps thinly sliced
  8. 5 large eggs
  9. 4 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded (1 1/2 cups)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a large, deep skillet, melt 4 tablespoons of the butter. Add the carrots and water. Cover and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Uncover, raise the heat to high and boil off any excess water. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the broccoli rabe, cover and cook over moderately high heat until just tender, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl. Lightly beat 1 of the eggs and stir into the broccoli rabe.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the shiitake, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Line an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch metal loaf pan with foil. Butter the foil. In a large bowl, using a pastry cutter or 2 sharp knives, coarsely chop the carrots. Lightly beat the remaining 4 eggs and add them to the carrots with the shiitake, cheddar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Spread half of the carrot mixture in the prepared loaf pan in an even layer. Top with the broccoli rabe mixture. Cover with the remaining carrot mixture, smoothing the surface.
  5. Set the loaf pan in a large baking dish. Add enough hot water to the dish to reach halfway up the side of the loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the cake is firm throughout. Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Unmold the carrot terrine onto a platter. Cut into 1-inch-thick slices and serve.
Make Ahead The baked carrot terrine can be refrigerated overnight in the pan. Bring to room temperature, cover with foil and reheat in a hot water bath in a 350° oven until heated through, about 30 minutes.
