Ham Loaf with Mustard Sauce Recipe

Ham Loaf with Mustard Sauce Recipe

Brown sugar, mustard, herbs and spices season this hearty ham loaf. I like to make several loaves to serve to our retirement club. To speed things up, I use my food processor's chopper blade to grind the meat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours YIELD:8-12 servings


  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 pounds ground fully cooked ham
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground pork
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, milk and eggs. Crumble meat over mixture and mix well. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cloves and mustard. Spread in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Press meat mixture on top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Let stand for 10 minutes before inverting onto serving platters.
  • 2. For sauce, combine egg yolks, mustard, vinegar, sugar, water and salt in a heavy saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture is thickened and reaches 160°, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and horseradish. Cool. Fold in cream. Serve with ham loaves. Yield: 2 ham loaves (6-8 servings each).
