"I COPIED this recipe exactly the way Grandma has written it in her worn cookbook. The only difference today is that I can't get home-smoked ham like those Grandpa used to cure in his old-fashioned smokehouse. But that never matters to hungry folks at the table—Grandma's recipe is a winner every time!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2012

"There was way too much milk in this recipe, it was very soupy after adding everything. I added an extra egg, an probably an extra cup of dry breadcrumbs. The vinegar, brown sugar topping was very watery.....I threw it out and combined brown sugar, dry mustard and dark brown mustard, which made a paste, rather than a watery mixture. I also divided the ham/pork mixture and made 2 meat loaves."
