Empty measured stuffing into large bowl. Combine milk and ketchup; pour over stuffing; let stand 15 minutes or until stuffing is soft. Add remaining ingredients except peaches; mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well blended. Arrange peach halves, cut side down, in greased loaf pan; cover with meat mixture. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Unmold on serving platter. Fill centers of peach halves with currant jelly. Makes 6 servings.
