This is an old "church socials" recipe from the Midwest.

1 lb cured ham, ground
1 1/2 lb lean pork, ground
3/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup drained canned tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup milk


1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp dry mustard
2 tbsp vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix the ground ham with the ground pork and salt. Mix in the bread crumbs. Add the tomatoes, egg, and milk. Using your hands, mix together well and form into a loaf. Place the loaf in a meat loaf or other baking pan.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, and vinegar. Cover the meatloaf with the sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Baste the meatloaf every 30 minutes with the sauce. This is very important to bring out the full flavor.
