Canned salmon is the key ingredient in this comforting casserole sent in by Agnes Moon of Ionia, Michigan. Bread crumbs give it a soft texture...and mayonnaise, mustard and cheese add flavor to this old-fashioned favorite.

"Inedible! It was ALL bread crumps. Couldn't even taste the salmon or other ingredients. The 4 cups of bread crumbs may be a typo. 4 C = 1Qt. and this is supposed to ok in a 1 qt dish, with a qt of bread crumbs, plus all the other ingredients. I couldn't fit it all in a one and a half quart dish."
