TRIED ’N’ TRUE: The easiest ham loaf I’ve ever made

I have been asked for a good ham loaf recipe. This is really good. It comes from a friend of mine in Morton, Ill. Eileen Knapp makes this for her kids and grandkids — we all enjoyed it.

You can get your store to grind up your ham. That is so much easier for me.

You can put the ham loaf into a 9- by 13-inch pan or a bread loaf pan. This is the easiest ham loaf I’ve ever made. Thanks, Eileen.
