"This is a family favorite. My aunt used to make them every Easter. The recipe comes from an old church cookbook. Whenever I order the meat from the meat market, I order ground ham and pork from a local meat market premixed. I order triple the meat required, packaged into three packages, give one to my mother, use one, and freeze one to use later. Serve these with horseradish."

Very good,but I tweaked the recipe. The butcher suggest a ratio of 2:1. Therefore I used 1 1/4 pounds ground pork and 3/4 pounds ham. Also used bread crumbs instead of crackers. Used a generous 1/3 cup measuring cup to make consistent loafs to get 14. Next time would use 1/2 cup. The smaller 1/3 loaves I flip at one hour and tested temp and they were already done. I left in oven so glaze could caramelize on both sided. Then popped under the broiler to brown.
This is the recipe my mother always used. It is wonderful! She always glazed it with a brown sugar/yellow mustard glaze and served it with a sour cream/horse raddish sauce. It was an Easter tradition at our house!
I wanted to use up Christmas ham pieces and have a delicious appetizer for New Year's Eve. I didn't have any ground pork or ground beef but I did have ground elk. My daughter and I rolled them into little cocktail meatballs. I baked them until brown then covered with sauce and finished baking them. THESE ARE DELICIOUS!!!!
Six mini ham loaves (half recipe) = six delicious portions of meat. With 3 of us eating I just halved the recipe. The one change I made was I brought the glaze to a boil on the stovetop before adding it to the raw meat. I saved part of the glaze to add after the meat was cooked and basted 2-3 times while the meat was cooking. This is a delicious recipe that my family really enjoyed. I served this with ‘Spinach and Sweet Corn Mashed Potatoes’ another AR recipe and a simple salad. I’ve made ham loaves many, many times, but this was the first time I formed them in mini loaves. I liked it better than making 1 large loaf. Thanks, Deb, for sharing your version of Ham Loaf.
