Salmon Loaf and Baked Mashed Potatoes

I was in need of a quick supper tonight. I had a lot of running around today and didn't even think of supper until the last minute. This was a quick meal! I had salmon I wanted to use up!


The Menu:
Salmon Loaf
Baked Mashed Potatoes



The Original Recipe:
This was found on Allrecipe.com

Salmon Loaf

1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon, undrained
1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons melted butter


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a mixing bowl, combine the salmon, cracker crumbs, milk, egg, salt, pepper, and melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Press the salmon mixture into a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes or until done.


The Way I Made it My Own:
I wanted a big meatloaf pan full, so I used 2 cans and added some extra flavor
