The paté also makes a delicious appetizer, served in small slices with mustard, pickles and bread. The Wilton Long Loaf Pan is the perfect size for breads, meat loaves or cakes to serve a crowd.

Difficulty: No Reviews


  • 3 pounds chuck ground
  • 3 pounds pork ground
  • 5 slices bread torn in chunks
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1 roasted red pepper sliced
  • 1 roasted yellow pepper sliced
  • basil leaves Fresh
  • 2 (1 pound) loaves frozen Italian bread thawed to room temperature
  • olive oil


Bread serves 16-18 sandwiches.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix meats, bread, milk, eggs, salt, seasonings and pepper.

Step 2

To test seasoning, fry a small patty in skillet. If needed, add more seasonings. Mix in pine nuts.

Step 3

In Long Loaf Pan, place layer of meat about 1 in. deep, layer strips of roasted pepper and basil leaves. Repeat layers until all meat is used.

Step 4

Loaf should be a mosaic when cut. Cover Loaf Pan with foil. Place in 12 x 18 x 2 in. pan with hot water to 1 in. depth.

Step 5

This is easier to handle if long loaf is placed in sheet pan on rack, then add hot water to 1 in. depth.

Step 6

Bake approximately 2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 170°F. Remove, pour off liquid from loaf, place smaller pan on top, add weight (two lb. cans), refrigerate. This will make a paté loaf.

Step 7

This recipe can also be baked as a regular meat loaf. For meatloaf, do not cover or put in water.

Step 8

Spray Long Loaf Pan with vegetable pan spray. Knead loaves together, let rest 15 minutes. Roll into oblong roll and place seam side down in pan.

Step 9

Clip with kitchen shears at three inch intervals, brush with olive oil. Let raise until doubled in size.

Step 10

Bake in 350°F preheated oven for 30 minutes or until browned and hollow sounding when tapped.

Step 11

Remove from pan and cool before slicing.
