Zesty Ham Balls


2 lb. ground beef
2 lb. ground sausage (mild)
2 lb. ground ham
3 cups crushed graham crackers
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk

1 can tomato soup
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 tsp. dry mustard

Reheated Sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
4 tbs plain yellow mustard
2 tbs maple syrup
3 tbs honey
1/2 tbs garlic powder
1 tsp chipotle powder


Combine all and form into balls about the size of a tennis ball (or large ice-cream scoop). Bake covered for 30 min. at 350 degrees. Drain grease in pan.
While baking, mix sauce. Pour over baked balls and bake, uncovered, additional 30 min at 350 degrees.

Reheat Sauce for 6 ham balls.
Mix together and pour over reheated ham balls.


Story: This has been a family favourite for years. It makes a big batch (about 30-36 balls), which are good for freezing. Make the "reheat sauce" when you warm them from the freezer (about 30 min. at 350 degrees).
