I used to buy a ham loaf when I worked at Hess's Dept.Store in their Food Department. It was called "Moyer's Dinner Loaf". My family (mother, father and sister) LOVED it!! Years later, when it was no longer available, I started to do some research and finally created this recipe which is fairly close to that original ...... only, a little bit better! Try to find ham that is heavily smoked which will give you the very best taste!

How to Make Baked Ham Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat 2 large loaf pans (8/12" X 5") with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a very large bowl, combine the ground ham, ground pork, graham cracker crumbs, eggs, mustard, catsup, brown sugar, cloves and pineapple juice.
  3. Mix with hands until all ingredients are well combined. (Hint: If meatloaf seems "dry", add another egg or more pineapple juice; if it seems a little "wet", add more graham cracker crumbs.)
  4. Transfer meat mixture evenly between two prepared loaf pans. Press down firmly to compact meat mixture. Press down with tines of fork to make a "pattern" on the top of each loaf.
  5. Make the glaze: In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, catsup and pineapple juice. mix well and spread evenly over top of each ham loaf.
  6. Bake for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours or until ham loaf feels firm when pressed down on top of loaf.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Remove from loaf pan and serve. (HINT: make extra glaze to serve with ham loaf.)
