Layered Salmon Loaf

Wonderful dinner dish form my little friend, Jamie Henderson Swensen(who I babysat), here in Colorado City. She is a mom herself now, and sent me 4 great recipes to share. Since I love salmon croquettes, knew I was going to like this one. Hope you and your family enjoy it too. Thanks, Jamie...
