This is a recipe from my mother in law, Mary. She loved cookbooks and to try new things, but this is a tried and true recipe. My family likes to have this instead of turkey at family dinners.
I serve this with Party Potatoes.

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

LOAF

1 1/2 lb
ground ham
1 lb
ground pork
3 medium
eggs
1 c
cracker meal (prefer nabisco) but used a shake and bake for pork instead of cracker meal
1 can(s)
small, 6 oz. pineapple juice

TOPPING:

1 c
brown sugar
2 can(s)
small 6 oz. pineapple juice
1 tsp
dry mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Have the butcher grind the ham and the pork.
Mix well: ground ham, ground pork, cracker meal,eggs and 1 small can pineapple juice.
(I have not been able to find Nabisco cracker meal. I tried crushing soda crackers and then had inspiration and tried the shake and Bake mixture for Pork and it tasted fine.)
2
Make into loaf.
Pour topping mixture over loaf.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hr. May take longer. It should have a nice color. Baste with topping as it cooks as it makes it much tastier.
3
To serve, I cut it into pieces and cut the loaf down the center.
4
Can make into individual loaves which take less time to bake.
