Ham Balls

These babies are super simple, very tasty, and never disappoint us! The graham crackers make them extra tender. Today I didn't have quite enough plain grahams so I used cinnamon graham crackers to make it enough and the cinnamon really added a good flavor to them! Nice surprise!! I'll have to do that again. There were a few of us that think we might prefer them this way.

2 lbs. ground beef
2 lbs. ground turkey ham
2 cups fine graham cracker crumbs
2 eggs
1½ cups milk

Mix like you would for meatloaf. Using a size 20 cookie scoop shape and put into a non stick sprayed baking dish.

For a 9 x 13 pan use a half recipe. These freeze well so if you have extra just pop them in the freezer for a convenient supper later. I usually freeze my extra ones without the sauce.

2 cans (10½ oz.) tomato soup
¾ cup white vinegar
2 ¼ cups brown sugar*
2 teaspoons dry mustard

* I didn't add all the brown sugar. I used some SomerSweet (see previous post) and just went by the taste that I liked.

Mix sauce ingredients and spoon over each ball.

Bake @ 350° for 1-1½ hours. The last 15 minutes I like to use a small baster and put the sauce over the balls again.
