Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful.

Method

  1. Sauté the onions and garlic in olive oil. Add the meats, breadcrumbs, spices, salt and pepper. Stir and cook over low heat.
  2. When the meat changes color, add the liquids. Simmer over very low heat for at least 3 hours. The liquid will have almost entirely disappeared.
  3. Remove from heat and mix in the blender for 1 minute. If you want creamier cretons, blend for longer.
