Cold Turkey Loaf

Makes 6 to 8 servings

"I love a dinner of cold meat loaf along with a variety of salads and a bottle of good Gew├╝rztraminer," writes Rodney Garside. But since beef and pork are not on his diet, he uses ground turkey and plain or Italian-style turkey sausages.

 4 to 5 slices white bread
 1/2 pound raw turkey sausages
 1 pound ground lean turkey
 1 large egg, beaten to blend
 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage leaves or 1 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
Step 1

Tear bread into chunks and whirl in a food processor to make fine crumbs. Measure 2 cups and put in a large bowl.

Step 2

Squeeze sausages from casings into bowl. Add ground turkey, egg, milk, onion, sage, salt, black and white pepper, and cayenne. Mix well.

Step 3

Pat meat loaf mixture into an oiled or nonstick 5- by 9-inch loaf pan.

Step 4

Bake in a 350┬░ oven until meat loaf is firm to touch in center, about 1 1/2 hours.

Step 5

Serve hot, or let cool, then cover and chill until cold, at least 3 hours. Or store, chilled, up to 2 days. Run a knife between meat and pan rim. Invert meat loaf onto a platter. Cut into thick slices.
