Amish Ham Loaf

Amish Ham Loaf

Community Classics .
Edited on Jul 20, 2003

This is a little different type of dish from the Amish county of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.


1 lb. cured ground ham
1 lb. ground pork or hamburger
2 eggs
2/3 cracker crumbs or oatmeal
1/3 cup minute tapioca
1/4 cup milk (I use Carnation evaporated milk)

1/4 apple cidar vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 T. mustard


Mix ingredients and form into a loaf. Boil dressing a few minutes. Pour over loaf
Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) about 1 1/2 to 2 hours basting occasionally. Dressing should become thick and syrupy.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
