Pineapple Upside Down Ham Loaf

(based on a recipe in Magic with Leftovers, by Lousene Rousseau Brunner, 1955)

1 recipe HAM LOAF, before it’s cooked
1-1/2 T butter
2 T brown sugar
Slices of canned pineapple
Maraschino cherries

Grease the bottom and sides of a loaf pan. (It’s important that you do, because you want the ham loaf to fall out of the pan.) Melt the butter and brown sugar in the loaf pan you’re going to bake the ham loaf in. Stir until they are well blended. Lay in the pineapple slices to cover the bottom and place a maraschino cherry in the center of each slice. Pile the ham loaf on top. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, and turn out on a hot platter with the pineapple on top. Be careful when you turn it out – the butter and sugar mixture will be very hot! I’ve been burned making a regular pineapple upside down cake.
