Cranberry Ham Loaf Recipe

A cranberry sauce topping makes this easy-to-prepare ham loaf festive enough for a holiday meal. I find it’s a great way to use up leftover ham. —Ronald Heffner Pawleys Island, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 70 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce

"I personally did not care for the cranberry sauce on the ham loaf. I thought there were too many onions and peppers in the loaf to go with the cranberry sauce. I think I would eliminate either the green pepper and onions in the loaf or the cranberry sauce. Each by themselves were excellent."
