Can you make a nut loaf the day before and reheat it and if so can anyone share a good nut loaf recipe?

I'm usually the only veggie at Xmas and have something ready made but thought I'd try something new this year however it really needs to be something I can just bung in the oven on the day so I don't get in the way of the chef (dad)

Yes you can no problem. I'm making mine today and freezing it.

4 oz mushrooms
8 oz roughly blended nuts

You want some cashews, but the rest can be anything, cheap mixed chopped nuts, hazelnuts. I've even used washed Christmas nuts I'd pitched the raisins out of to keep DD1 happy. Actually that was a rather good rich one because of the Brazil nuts!

Chopped onion
Enough white sauce to bind and an egg

Fry onions in a good big blob of butter, add chopped mushrooms and fry until cooked.

Add enough flour and milk to make a thick onion and mushroom sauce. Add a shake of see thyme, salt and pepper.
Stir in the roughly chopped nuts and the egg.

Put it in a tin or Pyrex dish, 180 °C 20-30 min.

Not elegant more like stuffing than a loaf. You can't slice it, but being very moist it reheats in the oven or the microwave perfectly. Very simple and very tasty.

My D(much missed) MIL always reckoned on making full quantity for one veggi daughter as the carnivores all pinch it.

I used to make one from the Good Housekeeping recipe that you make and freeze in advance (and cook from frozen)
Not made it for ages but AFAICR :

onion (and garlic if you like) sweated in butter or oil
white breadcrumbs from a slightly dry loaf
white nuts- macadamias, brazils,almonds , crushed
tinned chestnuts
drained tinned artichokes, roughly chopped
cheese (my mum used to like Mancheno in it)
egg
pine-nuts

form into a long 'sausage' and wrap in greaseproof paper and foil.

Cook from frozen, then open the parcel and add thyme sprigs.
Can't remember how long it cooks for though blush
