    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a new-wave meatloaf! I just purchase a 1-pound piece of smoked ham at the deli department for this and chop it finely on my processor, any brand will do as long as it is a smoke flavor ham, or save some of your cooked leftover ham to make this! I have made it two times in one month, including today, and has become a favorite of my familys. You can use regular saltine crackers for this in place of whole wheat crackers, and red bell pepper can be substituted for green, or use both!

      Thank you for this recipe! I didn't have a smoked ham, so I used the ground pork only. I got a juicy loaf with a little bit sweet taste. All family loved it! I will try to buy a smoked ham and make it again, and I am sure that it will be a winner :)
