Millet Loaf

Millet Loaf as I made it!

Serves 8

1/2 cup cashews
1 cup water
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups cooked millet
1/2 quick or old-fashioned oatmeal
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 Tablespoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon sausage seasoning
2 Tablespoons soy sauce

Put the water and cashews in a blender jar and blend until completely smooth...a couple of minutes.  Put all the rest of the ingredients into a large bowl and pour on the cashew/water slurry and mix well.  Pack into a greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes.  Take out of pan and serve immediately or cool and serve later.  You can use a gravy on top.  I used a slice on some whole wheat bread with mayonnaise as a sandwich. 

Next time I will use lettuce and tomatoes and maybe even an onion slice.  ALSO: next time I will lightly sautee the onion before mixing it into the other ingredients.  I liked it as it was but non-onion-lovers might be less happy with the "bite" of the onion if you cook this as listed.

These can be formed into patties and browned in a greased skillet instead of cooked in a loaf pan.  Can also be cooked in a casserole dish, maybe with catsup on top?

Since these have not yet been big sellers at our house, the next time I eat a slice, I will slice it rather thickly and brown it is a skillet with a little butter or olive oil or both!
