Ham (Meat) Loaf Two Ways

I know the picture is not exactly of ham loaf, it’s of sliced leftover ham loaf, fried!  I forgot to take a picture before I fried it.  As you can see, it’s fabulous this way.  Check the instructions at the bottom of the recipe.  This is one of my go-to recipes for leftover ham.

  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk, cream, or half and half

  • 1 TBSP yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Pepper
  • Other additions could be:

  2. Combine all ingredients.
  3. Form a loaf on a greased baking pan.
