Ham Loaf Recipe

"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!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 70 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pound ground fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs; add milk, bread crumbs and pepper. Add ham and pork; mix well. In a shallow baking pan, shape meat mixture into an 8-in. x 4-in. oval. Insert a meat thermometer. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients. Spoon over loaf. Bake 40 minutes longer or until the thermometer reads 170°, basting occasionally with glaze. Yield: 8 servings.
