Here is the recipe:
Ham Balls- Makes a BIG batch!
5 pounds ham loaf (Fareway has a nice ham loaf blend) OR 3 1/3 pounds ground ham and 1 2/3 pounds ground pork, mixed well
2 cups milk
3 cups graham cracker crumbs
Sauce: 2 cans condensed tomato soup
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons ground mustard
Mix ham loaf, eggs, milk, and graham cracker crumbs until thoroughly combined. This is a good job to do with plastic food service gloves- much easier to do with your gloved hands than trying to combine with a mixing spoon.
Shape into larger size meatballs. An ice cream scoop is helpful to get all the meatballs to a more or less standard size.
If you want to freeze the meatballs, bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Cool, and package as desired for the freezer. When ready to serve, mix sauce ingredients together, place frozen, partially cooked ham balls in a casserole dish and cover with the sauce. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
If not freezing, mix sauce ingredients together, place raw ham balls in a casserole dish and cover with sauce. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
