I don't remember how this recipe got it's beginnings,but it is a family & friends favorite.My dad is almost 90 years old and still loves this.I buy a large ham shank & pork loin, cut them up and grind the meat myself since I have my own grinder.This will usually be enough meat for about 6 loafs,the extras are frozen and given to family.
