Contributed by: Joy White of TeeterKats Kitchen


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained with juice reserved
  • 3 cups ground cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup grated onion
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt butter in the bottom of an 8x4 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle brown sugar over the butter. Spread drained crushed pineapples over the sugar.

In a large bowl, mix together the ham, onion, bread crumbs, eggs, and 1/4 cup of juice from the pineapple. Blend in the mustard powder and cayenne pepper. Pack the mixture into the pan on top of the pineapples. Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Uncover, and bake for another 10 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn upside down onto a serving plate. Slice as you would a meatloaf, and serve.

Let cool before slicing.
