Ham Balls with Brown Sugar Glaze
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
Makesabout 6 dozen
I thought it superb! I subbed 1% fat ground turkey for the ground pork to reduce the fat, and used prepared mustard because I forgot to buy dry. I was delighted to find ground ham sold in tubes (like breakfast sausage) which simplified the prep. I served them with pretzel sticks so family could “eat their toothpicks.” thank you for this wonderful recipe. I made them for Christmas dinner and may do so again for New Years dinner.
Because I had the ham, I made two recipes of this without the sauce. I froze most of them in bags of 20 - perfect for dinner for my husband and me. The ones I kept out I topped with the sauce and baked them for 30 additional minutes. The only change I made was saltines instead of cornflakes and prepared mustard instead of dry mustard in the sauce. This recipe is a keeper! (And to the latest review on line - I'm sure you could finish these in a slow cooker. You would need to bake the hamballs in the oven with out the sauce, and put them in a slow cooker with the sauce.)
Could I do these in a slow cooker?
These are so delicious!! I didn't have corn flakes, so used Special K and it worked fine!
Does it make any difference what kind of cereal? Does it have to be cornflakes or can you use Cheerios or Chex for example?
Do you spoon ALL of the glaze over the balls before baking or save some for tossing after baking ?
i've been making these ham balls for years and they are delicious! Everyone who tries them, loves them! Excellent party appetizer. The ham balls are tasty and the glaze takes them over the top!
My husband grew up with Ham Loaf and that's what these little appetizers are. So now we can have them for a quick snack or for a party!
Great recipe!! easy and delicious
