Glazed Ham Balls

 Glazed Ham Balls
Meet the Cook: Over the years, I have found this recipe ideal for using leftovers from a baked ham. The pleasantly soft ham balls are glazed with a thick sauce that's slightly sweet with a hint of cloves. I frequently take them to church potlucks. -Esther Leitch, Fredericksburg, Virginia
