This ham loaf is a great way to use that leftover ham, and it would be delicious with baked sweet potatoes.

The loaf is prepared in a loaf pan with oats and it is flavored with parsley, onions, and mustard. A tangy brown sugar and vinegar sauce is added just before the ham loaf goes into the oven.

Serve this ham loaf with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables or a salad.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground smoked ham*
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon​ fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk or half-and-half
  • 1 ​large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup light or dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup vinegar

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan
  3. Combine ground ham, mustard, chopped onion, parsley, oats, milk, and egg; mix well to blend and form into a loaf in the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Combine the brown sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook until the sugar has dissolved.
