Last night I made another “new to us” recipe.
I had some ham in the freezer (remember this?) , and I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it. So, I went to searching for different ham recipes.
Ham Balls showed up almost every where I looked. Must be good then, right?
Why, yes, they were great!
And easy, as well as a good way to use up some of that ham!
1 lb ground ham ($1.88)
1/2 lb pork sausage (.50 I used the breakfast sausage roll)1/2 lb ground beef (.65)
2 eggs (.24)
1 cup milk1 cup Italian bread crumbs (cracker crumbs or regular bread crumbs will do just fine)For the sauce:1 (10 1/2 ounce) can tomato soup (I used some Tomato Juice from our garden. Free)
1/3 cup vinegar1 1/2 cups brown sugar (.25)Mix all of the ham ball ingredients together. I used my trusty Kitchenaid, but you can do it in a large bowl. Then make the mixture into large sized meatballs and place in a 9×13 pan. (My 9×13 was pre-occupied so I used the next size down. I never can remember the size of that thing!).Mix up the ingredients for the sauce and pour over the meatballs. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Makes 12-15 large sized meatballs.
