Think of this as a ham sandwich in the form of a delicious savory meat loaf.
Place in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground:
2 cups diced ham
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 to 3 teaspoons prepared mustard, to taste
Pulse just until well mixed. Let staand for 10 to 30 minutes to blend the flavors. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan. Pack the ham mixture into the prepared pan. Bake until firm, about 30 minutes.
Ok, this is some seriously good
I can totally see me smearing this on toast in the morning. *drools*
FYI, Joy of Cooking is a FANtabulous cookbook. Everyone should own it. There aren't fancy shmancy pictures. The writing is pared (ha ha) down to the absolute essentials. There is a wealth of knowledge. If it's the ONLY cookbook you have, you will never regret it.
