I have been wanting to make this 1950’s glazed ham loaf for years

I love old school recipes….I have been wanting to make this 1950’s glazed ham loaf for years, but it seemed that I never had all the requisite ingredients at the same time…it was well worth the wait….the family loved it

, and even asked me to make it again…here’s how I made it.

Glazed ham loaf with pineapple is a delicious and savory dish that combines the flavors of ham, pineapple, and a sweet glaze. To make this dish, you’ll need ground ham, breadcrumbs, eggs, milk, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and pineapple slices.

Start by preheating your oven and greasing a loaf pan. In a large bowl, mix together the ground ham, breadcrumbs, eggs, and milk until well combined. Press the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake until it is cooked through.

While the ham loaf is baking, prepare the glaze by combining brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and a little water in a saucepan. Cook the glaze over medium heat until it thickens slightly

Serve the glazed ham loaf with pineapple slices on top for a delicious and satisfying meal!
