These two recipes are like Siamese twins to me, they always go together. Since they both cook at the same temperature, they can be cooked together
Savoury Salmon Loaf
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- I large can of salmon with the juice, flaked OR 2 small cans
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- Dash pepper
- 1/2 tsp. dried powdered sage or to taste
- 2 tsp. finely chopped onion or dried onion flakes
- 1 Tbsp. dried chopped parsley or celery seed to taste
Combine all ingredients in order given. Pack firmly into a greased loaf pan or casserole and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
- 4 large or 6 medium potatoes, peeled if new, scrubbed and skin on if new
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 small onion, sliced thinly into rings
- margarine or butter
Slice potatoes thinly, layering with onion rings. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper. Dot with margarine or butter. Repeat this layer 3 more times, dividing onion and potato slices accordingly.
Finish with flour, salt and pepper and onion rings dotted with butter or margarine. Pour milk into the pan from one corner until it can be seen easily between the slices from the alternate corner.
Cooking Both Recipes Together
Place the scalloped potatoes, covered, in a preheated 350 degree F oven. Place them slightly to one side of center of the oven. Bake them for 35 minutes. After that time, slide the salmon loaf into the oven for 25 minutes. When the second time is up, remove the lid from the potatoes and continue to cook both dishes for another 15 minutes to brown the top of the potatoes.

This is a Salmon Loaf with sage in it. Sage is one of my favorite herbs due to all the things it is good for. Anytime you cook and see sage in the ingredients, you can be sure it is a great food and it is great food for you.
For those of you who are interested in it, here is a link describing the benefits of sage.
- 1 15 oz. can salmon, undrained
- 1 cup fresh bread crumbs *
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1/2 cup evaporated or regular milk
- 2 Tbsp melted butter
- 1 Tbsp Minced Parsley
- 2 tsp dried onion
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp. crumbled sage
- 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
- Dash of freshly ground pepper
*I make my own bread crumbs by tearing up enough slices of bread to fill one cup and then spreading those out on a cookie sheet and leaving out or someplace safe overnight.
They will be crisp the next morning.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Butter a loaf pan.
- Flake undtrained salmon into a medium bowl.
- Add bread crumbs, eggs, celery, milk, butter, parsley, onion, salt, sage, lemon juice and pepper.
- Stir until well combined.
- Pack firmly into loaf pan.
- Bake for 40 minutes.
Great when served with a veggie and a salad of your choice.
