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."

Ready In:




  • Rinse and drain salmon, picking out any bones or skin you find. Let sit to drain well.
  • 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.
  • Grease 9x5x3 loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350.
  • Beat eggs until light fluffy. Add lemon juice.
  • Toss together the bread cubes and salmon. Pour egg mixture over and toss gently. Add white sauce and toss gently.
  • Add mixture to loaf pan and gently press to fill loaf pan firmly.
  • Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.
  • Before serving, combine soup and water to make a sauce to top loaf.
  • You can turn out of loaf pan or serve in pan. Pass around the sauce (in gravy/sauce dish) to pour atop servings. ENJOY!

  1. I remember my mother making and telling me about her mother making salmon patties with white sauce. So l was excited to see this recipe and had to try it. I also made cream of mushroom soup too. Wow this was on the money. Off the charts. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for the recipe. Absolutely delishes!


Having been born/bred in NJ and moving to WY, I've experienced a lot of change in my life! But cooking has always been a joy. I learned at my mother's knee, as she taught me when I started in high school and she started back to full-time work. By the time I graduated, I was doing most of the daily cooking at home and all my mother's friends were jealous! I would love to have a decent kitchen, and a decent 'audience" to cook for, but I'm limited by size and a "significant other" who thinks the only thing that's decent to eat is steak and potatoes! Creativity is out the window!
