I'm not a handy cook, but I thought this recipe would be easy to make. I left out the salt, cooked it in mini-loaf pans, and only had to cook it for 10 minutes longer than the recipe suggested. It came out excellent! Everyone in my family loved it, and I'm now making more for Thanksgiving dinner. If you do not allow the loaf to cool properly, it does have a lumpy cream cheese texture. However cooling it corrected this problem. Would HIGHLY recommend!
