HAM LOAF WITH MARMALADE

This is a recipe from one of my mother's PTO friends when I was a kid in school (in the 1950s, but don't tell!) Both this lady and my mother have been gone for years but we still enjoy many of the foods they used to make.

1 1/2 cup herb seasoned stuffing
2 cups milk
1 1/2 lb ground pork
1 1/2 lb ground ham
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp salt

Soak the stuffing in the milk for 5 minutes. Add the ground pork, ground ham, onion and salt. Pack lightly into a loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Spoon off the drippings.

TOPPING:

1 cup orange marmalade
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Combine all topping ingredients in a small bowl until well blended. Spread over the hot ham loaf and return loaf to the oven. Bake another 10 minutes. Let loaf stand for about 10 minutes before cutting.
