Prison Loaf - Recipe for Obedience

At the prison where I work in South East Missouri we have a special place called "THE HOLE"
Actually, we have 2 of them. One for bad inmates and one for bad and nutty inmates....also called Wobbleheads by my fellow staff. When the Wobbleheads act up more then attempting suicide or assaulting staff they are assigned up to about 2 weeks or so of eating "Meal Loaf" also called prison loaf as a behavioral management tool...AKA....punishment! Here are two samples of the Meal loaf recipes! Serve this to your kids sometime or better yet...take a dish to your next Church Fellowhip Dinner!

• 6 slices whole wheat bread, finely chopped
• 4 ounces imitation cheddar cheese, finely grated
• 4 ounces raw carrots, finely grated • 12 ounces spinach, canned, drained
• 2 cups dried Great Northern Beans, soaked,cooked and drained
• 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 6 ounces potato flakes, dehydrated
• 6 ounces tomato paste
• 8 ounces powdered skim milk
• 4 ounces raisins

Mix all ingredients in a 12-quart mixing bowl. Make sure all wet items are drained. Mix until stiff, just moist enough to spread. Form three loaves in glazed bread pans. Place loaf pans in the oven on a sheet pan filled with water, to keep the bottom of the loaves from burning. Bake at 325 degrees in a convection oven for approximately 45 minutes. The loaf will start to pull away from the sides of the bread pan when done.

Here is another recipe:

120 slices of wheat bread
25 cups grated nondairy cheese
10 cups raisins
4 cups vegetable oil
15 cups grated carrots
15 cups well-drained spinach
60 cups vegetarian beans
8 cups tomato puree
15 cups nondairy powdered milk
12 cups instant potatoes
1 pound brown sugar
1 cup white sugar

1. Mix.
2. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.
Makes 60 servings. - Perfect for Church picnics or large family reunions!

Bon Appetit!

On another note: I had to quit Our Calling...too many irons in the fire with my family, school, and work!
