My great-grandmother originally came up with this recipe as a way of using up leftover ham. My grandmother was responsible for the modern version. You can make the loaf ahead of time, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and store in refrigerator. Makes an ideal dinner party dish - tastes great with baked yams, biscuits and a big green salad with herb and garlic dressing.
