The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
There were some inventive recipes in the 1960's, and today's recipe is an example of that. Grape Nuts Ham Loaf uses the ubiquitous cereal as a tasty filler for this yummy meat dish.
Lois Elaine's Grape Nuts Ham Loaf:
2/3 c. Grape Nuts
3 1/2 c. (about a pound) ground cooked ham
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 T. finely chopped onion
1 t. dry mustard 1 can (8 1/4 oz) crushed pineapple
Combine cereal, pineapple and pineapple juice. Set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together; stir in cereal mixture. Shape into a loaf. Place in greased shallow baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Makes about 6 servings.
