Betty Crocker's Salmon Loaf

“A family favorite from way back, the recipe can be found in one of Mom's OLDEST Betty Crocker cookbooks under the title of, "Seafood Loaf." Mom always made it with salmon, and we always cleaned our plates when she made it. What's best is this makes a LOT of loaf for a big family. You can use canned tuna, but our favorite was always canned salmon.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain salmon, picking out any bones or skin you find. Let sit to drain well.
  2. Prepare White Sauce: In saucepan on stove, heat margarine, flour, salt, pepper, and milk. Stir over low heat until slightly thickening. This should be the consistency of a coffee cream.
  3. Grease 9x5x3 loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350.
  4. Beat eggs until light fluffy. Add lemon juice.
  5. Toss together the bread cubes and salmon. Pour egg mixture over and toss gently. Add white sauce and toss gently.
  6. Add mixture to loaf pan and gently press to fill loaf pan firmly.
  7. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.
  8. Before serving, combine soup and water to make a sauce to top loaf.
  9. You can turn out of loaf pan or serve in pan. Pass around the sauce (in gravy/sauce dish) to pour atop servings. ENJOY!
