Cookin’ With Joe

You asked for my ham loaf recipe. Here goes:

3 lb ham loaf mix (I buy mine premixed at a small grocery in my hometown, but I believe it to be 1-3/4 lb ground ham +1-1/4 lb ground pork.)

3 eggs
1-1/8 C corn flakes crushed
1C milk

Add more cornflakes if it is too wet.

Mix well and form into loaf. Bake 350 for 1-1/2 hours. Baste ever 30 minutes with glaze.

I form mine into a loaf (usually 2) on a foil lined baking sheet  you can use a loaf pan if you prefer.

Glaze

1/4 C vinegar, 1/4 C boiling water,3/4 C brown sugar, 1teaspoon dried mustard. Boil all for 5 minutes. Keep warm and brush on meat every 1/2 hour

You can substitute 1C Ritz crackers or saltines for for the corn flakes. Start with 2 eggs and add another as necessary.

You can make smaller batches, adjust fillers as necessary.

By family tradition it is served with homemade Mac and cheese

Enjoy

This is it. Sounds just like my Aunt's. Have to go to store to pick up a med and I'll see if there is any ham left in the store as I can grind my own. And the glaze reads just like I remember. Can almost taste it. Thanks so much for posting this.
