This is an old recipe dating back to the early 1900's. It was given to me by a special friend, Faye Mangus, who attended our church for more than 60 years.

The ham loaf is very rich and delicious. Faye always served it with the Mustard Brown Sugar Dressing (recipe also included here).

This dish was a real treat served for holidays and special occasions. The Amish near us, here in Northern Indiana, serve a similar dish, often topped with pineapple.

NOTE: Ask butcher to grind ham or use a food processor.
