Slow Cooker Salmon Loaf
As a stay-at-home mom with two small children, I'm always looking for quick, easy recipes that can be prepared ahead of time. I also don't like to heat up my oven during our hot Georgia summers. I adapted this recipe from one I found in an old slow-cooker book of my grandma's. I serve it with macaroni and cheese and pinto beans.

- 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed
- Cut three 20-in. x 3-in. strips of heavy duty foil; crisscross so
- they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up
- the sides of a 3-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray.

- mix well. Gently shape mixture into a round loaf. Place in the

- platter. Yield: 6 servings.
