Apricot Ham Balls
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min.
I like the apricot flavor with the ham. I could not find apricot nectar. I pureed a whole 15 oz can of apricot halves [in 100% juice]. This gives ˜ 1 2/3 cup liquid. For the meatballs, I used 1 egg, 1/2 cup apricot puree, 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs, 1/4 tsp onion powder, only 2 cups ground leftover Christmas ham, and 1 lb bulk pork sausage. I mixed the sauce as written, using the remaining apricot puree for the nectar. I formed 18 meatballs, using a # 20 scoop [a little more than 3 TB]. I placed the meatballs in a 8" x 12" baking dish. I chilled the meatballs 20 mins, then I baked the meatballs @ 350° for 20 mins without sauce. This was to help them hold their shape. Finally I added the sauce over top and baked them for 20 mins more. This would serve up to 6 for supper.
