Pineapple Ham Loaf

A great change from the regular meatloaf. This very tender and very yummy loaf is a crowd pleaser. Great for taking to pot lucks or church gatherings.

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons ground mustard, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound cooked ham, ground (about 4 cups)
1 pound ground pork
1 (20 ounce) can sliced pineapple
1/2 cup packed brown sugar

In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon mustard, salt and pepper. Add ham and pork mix well.

Shape into eight oval patties, set aside.

Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup of juice. Place pineapple slice between each ham patty. (Refrigerate remaining pineapple and juice for another use.) Carefully place in an ungreased 9 inx 5 in x 3 in loaf pan.

Pat patties around pineapple to form a loaf. Combine brown sugar, remaining ground mustard and reserved juice; pour a small amount over loaf. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours or until lightly browned and meat thermometer reads 160 degrees, basting occasionally with remaining  juice mixture.
