The internal color of meat loaf is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey loaf cooked to 165°F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a meat loaf, insert an instant-read thermometer into the center of loaf.
To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
