Evelyn's Ham-Pineapple Loaf

Angie Robinson


My Grandma Robinson's best friend gave her this recipe. I was skeptical as a kid, but found I could not get enough of it. It was actually a family favorite.

It is great as a leftover-even on a sandwich. The photo shows it granished with pineapple rings, so pretty!
