Old-Fashion Recipes For Ham Loaf

This is a couple of economical recipes that will enable you to feed your family a "meatloaf" that is different without breaking the bank, so to speak. If you prefer pork over beef, try this ham loaf. For a different take on the traditional meatloaf, try the Norwegian meat loaf.


1/2 lb ground beef
5 cups seasoned mashed potatoes
1/2 cup minced onion
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tbsp flour
3/4 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
pinch nutmeg
1/2 cup shredded pasteurized process cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch loaf pan with foil extending about 1/2 inch above sides. In medium bowl, combine ground beef, 2 cups of the potatoes, onion, eggs, flour, dill, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Press mixture into loaf pan. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees. Carefully remove meatloaf by lifting foil from pan. Peel off foil and transfer with spatula to an oven proof serving platter. In medium bowl, combine remaining potatoes with cheese. Spread on top and sides of loaf. Return to oven and bake 20 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned. Makes 4 servings.


1 1/2 lbs ground ham
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup quick oats
2 eggs, beaten
3 tbsp chopped onion
2 tbsp parsley flakes
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
