This ham loaf is a great way to use that leftover ham, and it would be delicious with baked sweet potatoes.
The loaf is prepared in a loaf pan with oats and it is flavored with parsley, onions, and mustard. A tangy brown sugar and vinegar sauce is added just before the ham loaf goes into the oven.
Serve this ham loaf with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables or a salad.
