Hearty Ham Loaf combines ground ham, pork and beef in tender meaty slices. Says Luella Feck of Bexley, Ohio. "I volunteered to cook for a regular group meeting of senior citizens. When I started, there were 35 attending. Now the members are up to over 100, thanks in part to dishes like this tasty ham loaf."
