Pre-heat oven to 350
Butter both the top & bottom buns
Put 2-4 slices of ham & 1 slice of cheese on each bun
Wrap each sandwich individually in tinfoil
Place in over for 20 minutes
*I sometimes add a bit of Italian Dressing to the top bun to give it a little zing

In a large bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard
Remove 1/2 cup for topping; set aside
Add the eggs, Worcestershire sauce, cereal and seasonings to remaining ketchup mixture.
Let stand for 5 minutes
Crumble beef over cereal mixture and mix well
Press meat mixture into a 9X5 loaf pan
Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes. (check from time to time, my oven takes forever!)
Drizzle with reserved ketchup mixture; bake 10 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°
