My brother in law Steve's grandfather always made these. Every time I make them, I text my sister to tell her to keep his memory alive. These are a crowd pleaser when attending a breakfast potluck. It makes a lot so I only make them when feeding a crowd.

If you live in the Midwest and have Fareway stores, you can substitute the ground ham and pork for ham loaf. If you live in Mesa, AZ, you may get ham loaf at Midwestern Meats. Finding ham loaf is a huge time saver when preparing this recipe.

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family.

How to Make Grandpa Young's Ham Rolls


  1. Mix all ham roll ingredients. Shape into logs approximately 2" long. I use my cookie scoop and then shape into a log.
  2. Arrange in a baking pan being sure to not let rolls tough. I use a jelly roll pan.
  3. Combine glaze ingredients. Pour glaze over rolls. Cover. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Turn. Baste. Bake an additional 45 minutes.
