This is a recipe from my mother in law, Mary. She loved cookbooks and to try new things, but this is a tried and true recipe. My family likes to have this instead of turkey at family dinners.
I serve this with Party Potatoes.

How to Make Ham Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Have the butcher grind the ham and the pork.
    Mix well: ground ham, ground pork, cracker meal,eggs and 1 small can pineapple juice.
    (I have not been able to find Nabisco cracker meal. I tried crushing soda crackers and then had inspiration and tried the shake and Bake mixture for Pork and it tasted fine.)
  2. Make into loaf.
    Pour topping mixture over loaf.
    Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hr. May take longer. It should have a nice color. Baste with topping as it cooks as it makes it much tastier.
  3. To serve, I cut it into pieces and cut the loaf down the center.
  4. Can make into individual loaves which take less time to bake.
