Ham Loaf and Mustard Sauce

A pleasant change from the usual meat loaf. If desired, add a little minced onion before baking. The sauce makes a large amount, and the remainder can be stored in the refrigerator and used as needed.


1 pound ground ham
1/2 pound ground pork
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup lightly salted cracker crumbs
1 small green pepper; chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon dry mustard
Mustard Sauce (recipe follows)


Mix first 6 ingredients together, reserving a few pieces of green pepper, and place in a greased loaf pan. Top with the green pepper pieces and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, 10 minutes. During the last 20 minutes, baste with the maple syrup mixed with the dry mustard. Serve with Mustard Sauce.

Mustard Sauce


1-1/2 cups Dijon mustard
4 teaspoons dry mustard
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1-1/3 cups oil
1 cup chopped fresh dill
Salt to taste
