Ham Loaf Superb

Quite some time back I posted a recipe for Gram’s ham loaf, and here we have another. I still contend the ham loaf is a midwestern/eastern thing, as I have never in my life (except for in Ohio) seen or heard of ham loaf. If you have left over ham from your holiday dinners and received a meat grinder for Christmas (you too?) you could give this a spin for a Thursday night sometime. Scalloped potatoes and greens on the side, yummmmm!

  1. I love a good ham loaf..my grandmother used to make it after the holidays..of course she had a meat grinder..one of those heavy things that was attached to the end of the table that had all kinds of parts that you had to wash..I always wondered how they knew how it went back together again. ..I do not have one. Perhaps they will grind some ham for me at the meat counter at my local grocery store:)


  2. That is interesting that you have never had ham loaf. Where were you when I made it? Maybe it was when you were at college, so therefore you didn’t have it. Then again, I have a recipe for a Ham and Cheese Casserole that you would find in my original cookbook. It came from Helen next door to us. It is yummy! and uses ground ham. If you have a Cuisinart you would pulse the ham in smallish batches with the sharp blade just until it is the right consistency. But an old fashioned meat grinder does it best. I still have mine (Gram’s).
