This one is actually really quite good.


2 lbs. ground pork
2 lbs. ground ham (use very lean meat)
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. cracker crumbs or bread crumbs
1 c. milk

Note: If you can get your butcher to do it - have them grind the ham once and then grind it a second time with the ground pork added to it. You still need to mix it up well when you get it home in the recipe but the cooked texture is nicer in my opinion.

Mix together thoroughly. Use non-stick pan, 9 x 11 inches, 3 to 3 1/2 inches deep. Shape loaf leaving room at sides for basting. Also make imprints with fingers in meat so sauce can penetrate through for added flavor.


1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. vinegar
1/2 c. water
1 tbsp. dry mustard

Pour over loaf and baste occasionally. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

PS I have also used a muffin tin to make these as individual hamloaf "muffins". It is a great for portion size metering as well as they freeze really well for use later. Just form the amount you want as a portion into the non-stick muffin tin and pour a bit of the sauce on each one - then bake. Just check for doneness as they will cook faster than a big loaf.

This does sound really good! Think I will try it this weekend......I like the idea of individual loaves.

I googled it. It sounds hard and bland... it was a staple in the civil war.

"Mix 5 cups of flour to 1 cup of water containing a 1/2-tablespoon of salt. Knead into a dough and roll out to 3/8-inch thickness. Cut into approximately 3-inch squares and pierce each with a fork or ice pick several times. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until slightly brown."
