This Ham Loaf blew me away! I have never made Ham Loaf before because my husband isn’t a lover of ham. This is made with ground ham and ground pork. My husband and my granddaughter said they couldn’t tell I made it with ham and everybody cleaned their plates! I’ve seen Ham Loaf with glazes but I decided to leave it plain and I’m glad I did because it tasted great without being smothered in all that sugar.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 9” x 13” baking pan with cooking oil.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork.
In a large bowl, using your hands, combine
the ground pork and ground ham.
Add all of the rest of the ingredients
and mix well with your hands.
Place the mixture into the prepared
baking pan and form into a loaf.
Bake for 90 minutes.
Let rest for 5 minutes, slice and serve.

Looks very tasty. I know a dog who would fight me for it too….
Thanks! I bet your dog would love all that pork! That’s some good eating…lol
He wouldn’t get a look in!
You really should be a prep for food advertisers!
Why aren’t you?
You are so sweet. I don’t even have a regular camera! I use my IPad to take my pictures. Thank you for the nice compliment!
This looks really good Diane. I think I’ll try it for one of my next dinners with my sister. We get together for dinner once a week.
You will want to send some home with her or freeze the leftovers. It is a great meal for company! That is so cool you two get together once a week. Time with family is so important!
Haven’t heard of Ham Loaf. Interesting! By the way, I love your pictures and instructions. Makes me want to run into my kitchen and start cooking. 🙂
Thank you! You just made my blog a success! I have so much fun doing this and it’s comments like your’s that make it even better!
I <3 HAM!!!!
Me too but that’s why it took me so long to make this! I usually eat it all and there are no leftovers. We got a really cheap deal on ham over Easter and I froze it!
Oh wow! I see, we here only buy it for Christmas lol I guess its traditional but I don’t really see it that way, I just eat it once a year.
Just finished grinding the ham and I cant wait for dinner tonight!Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
You’re welcome and enjoy!
Supper was a hit.This loaf is delicious.I made it exactly as written and it was perfect!
I am so glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know Gwen!
Great for after Easter too, when your ham is big and you want to try something different with it.
That’s what this was, Easter ham. The day after Easter they had a huge ham on sale for practically nothing. We cut it into chucks and froze it. Practically a free meal!
That is the time to scoop up a ham for sure. My mom used to chunk up the remaining ham (and we got a fairly small one) and use it to make quiche … loved that, with spinach and the French-fried onions on top. The whole house would small of it, and when I took leftovers to work to heat up in the microwave the next day, the kitchen would smell heavenly and everyone wanted the recipe for it!
Oh my that sounds heavenly! What a great memory!
I do like quiche – hers had no crust so not like Quiche Lorraine with a pastry crust, but it was wonderful.
That looks yummie, and I bet it would be great cold for picnics.
It is very good cold. I ate leftovers for 3 days cold. Thanks Chris!
LOVE this idea. I make meatloaf all the time so it’d be great to mix it up once in a while!
Thank you it is a really nice change of taste!
This looks delicious. I am glad you choose to leave it plain. I always opt to leave the sugar out of a dish that is already filled with so much flavor
Thank you! It really tasted perfect just like this and you’re right, so much flavor. I love ham in anything!
Now there’s something different to try!
It is very easy and the taste is amazing! Have a great weekend June!
Thanks Diane, you too
This sounds very good, Diane. I’d never thought about making a ham loaf until seeing yours. How’s the countdown going until new oven and cooktop arrive? I hope delivery and installation go perfectly so you can get back into your routine.
Thank you Janet and it came today! Unfortunately I had surgery yesterday so my husband gets to cook all this week on it.
Ham is one of my husband’s favourites! I never thought to use it in a meatloaf, thanks Diane!
You’re welcome it has a wonderful flavor.
I think my kids will love this!
My grandkids did too. Have a fantastic weekend!
