Helen's Company Roast

Helen's Company Roast sliced and served on platter with dressing.

A quick and easy vegetarian entree loaf good served hot or cold.

When I was seven years old my third cousin, Ron married Helen.   Helen moved from Ontario to Newfoundland  to work as an accountant in our church office and was the person whom we kids took our school fees to every month.  (Until 1997 all schools in Newfoundland were church run schools.)  The church offices were connected to the school by a short hallway and it was like going to Narnia on the day we were allowed to go pay our fees.  After Ron and Helen married I saw her just about every day because she and Ron would eat dinner (lunch) at his mother's place which was next door to my house.

Helen was always nice to my sister and me and as adults it was always pleasant to meet up with her at church functions and camp meetings.  We were all saddened some years ago when Helen died suddenly in her sleep. 

I don't ever remember eating anything specific Helen had made but a few years ago I was thumbing through an old church cookbook and found this vegetarian roast Helen had submitted.  I copied the recipe and stuffed it in the old recipe box and there it stayed until this past week.  I was rifling through the box and saw this and as Thanksgiving was coming up I decided to make it for our meal which we would be sharing with our youngest son and his family.   

The recipe in my messy scrawl.

You will notice there aren't any seasonings in the roast except for salt. I have not included any as I wanted to make the roast as it is written. Feel free to add any seasonings you like.
