  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the bread in a large bowl, pour in the milk and soak until soft. Mash well, then mix in the ham, beef, eggs, salt, dry mustard, and 1/3 cup of brown sugar. Mix thoroughly and pack the mixture into a 9x13 glass baking dish. Stir together 1 cup of brown sugar, flour, and prepared mustard. Stir in enough vinegar to make a spreadable paste. Spread the topping over top of the meat.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for one hour until the ground beef has cooked, and the topping has browned nicely.

This was absolutely delicious. I cooked it exactly according to the recipe. We had a lot of ham leftover from Christmas and it was a great way to use it. We found that the flavours improved ove...

Very good ham loaf! I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I will do differently next time is to add some ketchup to the glaze (and therefore cut back on some of the sugar.) I really enjo...

I have been searching and searching for a recipe that emulated what my grandmother used to make. I finally found it. I will use this recipe over and over again and recommend others to do so as ...

This was almost inedible. The topping was good, but the rest was just awful.
