In the spirit of Lent, and abstinence of meat on Fridays for some, here is a super simple Salmon Loaf recipe. I love to bake this one and serve over rice for an easy meal.
...and I as was writing this post I saw a recipe in Runners World March 2012 magazine for Mini-Salmon Loaf. Same idea, just "slider" or kid sized!
Recipe from Grandma Nancy (that woman knows a lot of recipes, I know!)
Oven at 350 degrees
1 lb. can salmon, drain (Look in the Canned Tuna section!)
1 can cream of mushroom/celery soup (10 ¾ oz)
1 beaten egg
1 cup dry bread crumbs (Probably won’t use whole cup)
½ cup chopped onions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients. Depending on how moist/dry you would like the loaf to be, use less bread crumbs the recipe calls for. I like to make it a little more moist so I can reheat the loaf several times without it drying out. Place in greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
