I actually had a hard time putting this together- maybe it was that I am not used to working with canned salmon, but the odors were almost making me gag, so I was anxious about how it would turn out. It was actually wonderful. I added a few extra spices, and my husband and I both ate more than our fair share of it.
I followed the directions explicitly and the casserole tasted fine, but it did not look very appealing. Maybe, I should have beaten the egg whites separately before adding them to the rest of the ingredients in Step 5.
Very delicious, homey and comforting! it's sort of like a strata that doesn't need advance preparation. I really didn't know what to expect from this recipe, and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it turned out. I also used whole wheat bread, and assumed that the can of salmon was the 16 oz size, not the smaller, tuna sized can. Since I don't have any cooking spray I simply brushed the olive oil on the bread and the pan, which worked perfectly. Other wise I followed the directions that resulted in a perfectly puffy and scrumptious dinner. I think I'll be using this recipe as a jumping off place to get creative with other fillings and am toying with the idea of a vegetarian version. Mirj this is another good one!
