Put your choice of meat, the eggs, and mayonnaise into the bowl of a food processor. Add the cheese (see below*) and seasonings (see below*) and process until the mixture is well blended and has a smooth texture, about 20 seconds. Add more mayonnaise as needed if the pate is too dry. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve with bread or crackers.

For ham: Swiss cheese, 4 gherkins, and 1 teaspoon paprika
