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.
