Cooking Suggestions

For the convenience of our customers, the cooking suggestions and instructions are printed on the label of every package.

At our home we prefer to shape Gahr’s Loaf Mix into ping pong size meat balls. We then cook it in a crock pot on high for two hours, we do not add any other ingredients or water. We then serve it with cheese flavored mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese.

If you really want to make it special, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla per pound of hamloaf.

Over the years customers have submitted ideas such as: Baking Gahr’s Loaf Mix with orange juice, wine, ginger ale, brandy, pineapple juice or crushed pineapple, tomato soup, honey, cloves and with the traditional topping sauce.

This recipe for topping sauce was submitted by Suzi Kraft-Roddy. Her sauce consists of:

1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon mustard

Blend then baste every 15 minutes while baking. Leftovers can be used to make omelets or added to alfredo and noodles.

Other toppings include 3 parts Sour Cream to 1 part Horseradish.

In the Fall our product can be cooked in Squash or Peppers.

Some of our customers cook their hamloaf mix in a crock-pot at work and then bring it home for supper.

We welcome your ideas for this cooking suggestion page.
