Marcia’s Mom’s Salmon Loaf

My friend Marcia gave me this recipe many years ago…actually so long ago I do not remember when! This recipe is originally from Marcia’s mom! So it is a family recipe of theirs & I love that Marcia shared it with me!

A good alternative to salmon patties, which was a staple in our home, this salmon loaf is super simple to mix up & pop in the oven.

I doubled the original recipe so I will give you the ingredients for the pictures I have, but if you want a shorter loaf, just half this recipe, except the eggs…add 2 eggs for 2 cans of salmon, I used 3 eggs for 4 cans… I only had 3 eggs :}} So, I changed the original recipe a bit,,,,but it is basically the sameĀ Also, I used greek yogurt instead of the original sour cream…

Serve this salmon loaf with a salad & you have a delicious lunch or dinner! You can also slice this & make a sandwich out of it, lettuce & tomato on your bread…delish!

Here is the recipe


4 cans (7 oz) of salmon

3 eggs

1 cup canned onion rings

1 cup plain greek yogurt

2 tbsp lemon juice, use fresh if you can


1 loaf pan, spray with non-stick spray *** Marcia’s mom said to bake this in a greased bundt pan for this amount of ingredients…this would be lovely to serve at a buffet or luncheon baked in a bundt…

  1. Drain the salmon, & I remove the bones & the skin…but that is your choice, Murray likes to leave the skin & bones in….
  2. Put the salmon into a large bowl. & break it up with a fork or spoon
  3. Add the eggs, onion rings, yogurt & lemon juice
  4. Mix everything together
  5. Put the mixture into the greased loaf pan
  6. Bake in a 350f oven for about 1 hour until it is brown & cooked completely.
  7. Let cool a bit & turn our of the pan if you want to serve on a serving dish!
  8. Slice

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
