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!
