Pour into well-greased loaf pan. Chill. When cold, slice and sauté in small amount of oil until golden brown. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

*About Ac'cent: This is a form of monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is supposed to intensify flavor, but unessential in any recipe. Some people also have allergies to this ingredient.
