I actually always said I didn't like ham loaf. DH wanted some so I found this recipe. He said it's just like he remembered it growing up and I actually not only liked it but loved it! It was really good and the glaze has a nice bite to it.

This recipe is awesome! My husband said it was the best ham loaf that i have ever made. In fact, we are thinking about having this at Thanksgiving along with the turkey and all the other food! Highly recommended!!!
