Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was made in 1935 at a girls camp near Hazelhurst, Wisconsin. Popular in its day, hamloaf was a a baked meat dish, similar to meatloaf, made of ground ham and ground pork and combined with other ingredients to form a loaf like shape.Distinct in color and taste from meatloaf, hamloaf is often baked with a sweet glaze, often consisting of brown sugar, molasses, pineapples, or cherries. Some cooks made it with Spam.
