Contest-Winning Pineapple Ham Loaf Recipe

Contest-Winning Pineapple Ham Loaf Recipe

My cousin served this tender ham loaf at a family get-together, and I eagerly asked for the recipe. Since then, I've often taken it to church functions and served it when friends come to dinner. It's always well received.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound fully cooked ham, ground (4 cups)
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 can (20 ounces) sliced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon mustard, salt and pepper. Add ham and pork; mix well. Shape into eight oval patties; set aside.
  • 2. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup juice. Place a pineapple slice between each ham patty. (Refrigerate remaining pineapple and juice for another use.) Carefully place in an ungreased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Pat patties around pineapple to form a loaf.
  • 3. Combine brown sugar, remaining mustard and reserved juice; pour a small amount over loaf. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/4 hours or until lightly browned and a thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with remaining juice mixture. Yield: 8 servings.
