This is absolutely delicious... I got the recipe from Scott's Aunt Judy, who got it from her mother (Scott's grandma), who got it from a friend at church years and years ago. It's so good we're having if for our Christmas dinner this year. I can't wait!
2 lb ground meat - 2/3 ham, 1/3 lean pork (not sausage)... I grind the ham in my food processor, and the lean pork I buy pre-packaged in the meat department.
1 pkg Club butter crackers, crushed (one of the pkgs from the box)
1 egg per pound (so 2 eggs)
1 heaping tsp ketchup
milk - enough to "make it right"... when you take the whole loaf in your hand, it just begins to droop down
~Mix all in large bowl and place in baking dish. Pour glaze over loaf...
~Glaze: 1 1/3 cups brown sugar, 2 tsp mustard, 1/2 cup cider vinegar
~Bake 1 1/2 hours at 300. Baste periodically throughout baking. Serve extra glaze in serving dish.
