I have experimented a lot with this recipe and I have found the simple recipe was the best. Hope you get a chance to try it some time.

My Ham Loaf recipe

2 pounds left over Ham / ground (I use my Kitchen Aid food grinder with the coarse plate)
1 pound fresh ground pork, unseasoned (I buy this at the store)
2 cups Frosted Flakes (measure two cups of flakes then crush to about ¼ inch size)
2 eggs
1 Cup milk
1 Tablespoon dry mustard,
3 slices caned pineapple
3 maraschino cherries
¼ cup packed brown sugar

In a Large bowl mix ground Ham and ground pork together. You want to keep the mixture lose, do not mix this like a ground beef meat loaf / keep it lose.

In another bowl combine brown sugar and dry Mustard. Then add to Ham and pork mixture. At this time add the Frosted Flakes to the loaf.

In a two cup measuring cup pore a cup of milk and add two eggs, mix slightly and add to loaf. DO NOT! Over mix this! You do not want this to be a tight mixture; it should be shaped in a loaf. But not packed tight in the pan.

Place 3 slices of pineapple on top and in the center of each pineapple ring, place a maraschino cherry.

Bake at 350° for 45 minuets to 1 hour
