Glazed Ham Loaf has been a family favorite since I was a kid. My Grandmother Eck made it for many family dinners as I was growing up and I’m so thankful I have her recipe to pass on.
It’s so simple and yummy I don’t know why it isn’t something we eat on a regular Wednesday? Honestly people either love or hate Ham Loaf! It’s the pork version of meatloaf, with it’s own special flavor and ingredients! Maybe it’s the name……..Ham sounds good but add the word loaf and it kinda looses it’s magic maybe – but trust me this is good!
Graham crackers, pineapple juice and brown sugar……YUM!
And that glaze, I mean, let’s just talk about that for minute.
You pour it over the ham loaf before putting it in the oven. The glaze is also for basting while it’s cooking. You will get this beautiful sticky kind of crust and then you serve it with the Ham Loaf – tangy and delicious!

This is so good with my Mom’s Twice Baked Candied Sweet Potatoes – I mean seriously how can you go wrong with the word “candied” in the name!
