StoneGable Amish Ham Loaf

1 1/2 lbs cooked ham, ground (you can do this in a food processor in batches if you don't have a grinder)

1 lb bulk pork sausage

2 eggs

1 cup gingersnap crumbs (or graham crackers, but please look for gingersnaps, it makes the dish so good)

1/2 cup milk

1 TBS mustard

1 TBS Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

 

Sauce:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 TBS dry Mustard

1/2 cup vinegar

1/2 cup water

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix ham, sausage, eggs, gingersnaps, milk, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and pepper together in a large bowl. DO  NOT SMOOSH. Mix thoroughly but gently.

 

Form into a loaf shape and put in a large pan.

 

Put the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and cook until sugar is disolved. Brush the top of the hamloaf with the glaze.

 

Bake for 1 1/2 hours, basting often with glaze. Let sit, tented with foil for 10 minutes before slicing.
