Pineapple Ham Loaf Patties

Making these into patties instead of loaves cuts down the baking time and everyone gets their own slice of pineapple! You can make them ahead and freeze (see directions at the end.)

Pineapple Ham Loaf Patties

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup bread crumbs*
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound fully cooked ham, ground**
1 pound ground pork**
1 can pineapple slices
brown sugar or honey

In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, mustard, salt, and pepper. Add ham and pork; mix well but do not mash while mixing.
Form into 9 equal hamburger-like patties and place a pineapple ring on top of each one. Place on cookie sheet that has sides.
Drizzle with honey or sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until meat is cooked through.

For ham balls, chop up pineapple and mix in with meat. Form balls. Drizzle with honey or sprinkle with brown sugar and bake until done.

TO FREEZE....Make patties or ball and freeze on wax lined cookie sheet. After they are frozen transfer to bags. To cook, thaw and top with pineapple (for the patties) and the brown sugar or honey and bake as directed.

* To make GLUTEN-free use QUINOA flakes

**Ham loaf meat mixture can be substituted for the ham and pork.
