I like to keep this on hand for lunches, it freezes well, great for picnics in the summer, also good for buffets. Can be served hot as a meat loaf but we like it best cold. from Canadian Diabetes Association

Rather than steaming this with the bay leaf, I grilled "burgers" from the mixture. It's been a major hit with all but my one daughter who absolutely refuses to eat anything made from pork. Ummm, I forgot to mention, I substituted deer burger for the hamburger (a common practice in my house). Thanks for the recipe Dorothy.
