  • Line two 5-1/2 x 3-inch loaf pans crosswise with 3 slices bacon each (ends of bacon will drape over edges of pans). Divide pork mixture evenly between loaf pans and pat mixture firmly and evenly into pans (pans will be full). Place two bay leaves on top of the pork mixture in each pan; fold bacon slices over top of bay leaves. Place loaf pans on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  • Bake pâté for 50 to 60 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers of the loaves reads 170°F. Remove pans from oven and carefully tilt pans over a heatproof bowl to allow excess fat to drain. Place a small sheet of foil over each loaf pan; top with a 1-pound can of fruit or vegetables to compress pâté. Let cool for 30 minutes, then refrigerate for 4 hours or until fully chilled.
