Salmon Loaf

This had to be one of my gram's favorite recipes. She has a sauce that is served over the salmon loaf, but it's only with one of the recipes. I've found it written down in several different places. Two are in the zip lock bag and one in her recipe box. Sadly, the best one is in a note book so old and frail, every time I open it, it flakes away. Also, it was written with a fountain pen and the ink is fading badly. I have no idea how to save it. As always, the directions are somewhat sketchy, but I'll do my best to make this recipe do-able.

Enjoy~
