Serves: 14 slices|
Us small loaf pans, approx. 2 ½” x 5 ½“, makes slicing easier (the loaf size is the slice size).
Line bottoms of the 2 loaf pans with bacon (1 piece each cut in half to fit better on bottoms and save 1 piece cut in half to put on top)
Preheat oven to 400 f.
Mix ingredients in a bowl. Place mixture into the 2 bacon lined loaf pans (really pack it in as this will make it stick together better when you slice it). Place bacon on top. Place loafs into water bath and place in preheated for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Check temperature at 20 minutes. Cook until internal temperature reaches 145 – 150 f. When it reaches that temp. remove from oven and let cool on top of stove (remove loaf pans from water bath). Chill before removing pate from pans and slicing.
