Cook time and temperature
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I would cook it at 350 to 375 until the internal temp reaches 160. Time will vary depending on the size of the loaf, your oven, the pan you bake it in, etc.
The USDA specifies 165F minimum for safet.

Of course the USDA does tend to be excessively paranoid about protecting us from the foods we love. Until a couple of years ago they recommended 160F for pork, by which time it's completely dried out. The USDA has been "protecting" us from delicious Spanish pork products for some time, but now they are finally easing up.
Thanks ChefOno! Meant 165!
True enough about the old pork temps and even the current ones are a bit on the "safe" side -- assuming one uses an accurate, calibrated digital thermometer properly. However, unlike modern pigs, virtually all poultry is contaminated with one pathogen or another (including free-range organics).
Ain't no thing.
