During World War II meat was scarce and rationed. Butchers came up with a recipe for ham loaf for the holidays since most people could not afford a whole ham. Since then this recipe has been a family favorite and served at our family gatherings.
- Mix first 6 ingredients, well with hands and mold in pan. Cover with foil and bake at 250 – 275 degrees for 2 ½ - 3 hours. Keep covered until the last 1hr.
- While ham loaf is baking prepare sauce with remaining ingredients: place all ingredients in a small sauce pan bring to a boil for a minute. Simmer 10-15 minutes.
- When one hour remains drain off liquid from ham loaf and pour over sauce ham loaf. Basting every 15 minutes until sauce forms a glaze. Turn up a heat a little.
