    This morning's NPR news has a feature on a new method of prisoner discipline being practiced at a maximum security prison in Baltimore. It is the dreaded LOAF -- check this out! They give the recipe, too. ;)

    I don't know, it can't be all that bad. It looks like some recipes I've seen and tasted for vegan Meatless "meat"loaf.
    I'm sure a little salt and pepper wouldn't hurt.

    they didn't post the most important ingredient. This tends to make it a little off. Anyone in prison cooking knows what I'm talking about. It may have changed but it was this way yrs. ago.

    Very good recipe . I worked for a county jail system when I was young and we had somthing very similar . They were for the prisoners who had commited offenses bad enough to land them in the hole ( SOLITARY ) . If I remember right it was dried beans ,
    grated carrots , a little rice , raisins , powdered milk and bread .
    We put this all in a roasting pan with just enough water to soften the beans , bake for a couple of hours and cut this into squares before it cools . They called them Jute Balls and you supposedly could stay alive on them if you did not break your teeth in the process . As I remember the hole was a place to be avoided . Prison aint no picknick for the bad ones .

    Looks quite easy to eat with a spoon...one of the criteria on which prison food is judged.
