This is a great way to use leftover ham…in fact, a friend of mine thinks it’s one of the best ham dishes she’s ever tried. I learned to love cooking while working alongside my mother, who owned a lodge and fast-food stand.
I "inherited" this recipe from the family that owned the building where I rented my first apartment. It's one of my favorites and very easy to prepare. It's great for company because you can mix the loaf in advance, then simply pour on the sauce before putting it in the oven...it's the sauce that makes it so good!
Sweet and spicy ingredients combine in a fruity glaze to top this delightful ham, which was one of my mom's specialties. Our family enjoyed it many times for Easter. The horseradish and dry mustard in the glaze add delicious zip to the tender ham slices.
