O-M-G, this is TO DIE FOR! I had to travel quite a ways to find a store that could prepare ground smoked ham for me but it was so worth it. I don't even like dishes like this and I thought it was good and my husband, the meatloaf fanatic, thought he had died and gone to heaven. Thanks so much!


Yummy! I used leftover deli old fashioned ham and used food processor to grind the ham. I did not add the salt because I felt the ham was salty enough. I also skipped out the 1/3 cup brown sugar. The caramel topping made it sweet enough. Almost sweet and sour. Definately would make it again. I also halfed the recipe and that made more then enough for two with leftovers for lunch!

I could only give this three stars; my husband liked it, but he was alone. It was a huge amount even for my family of seven...which means a lot of leftovers! It turned out very mushy despite the ten pieces of bread and six eggs. I followed the recipe exactly as was written. I even ground my own ham. I may try this again, but I'll keep looking for the perfect ham loaf recipe.
