Ham Loaf Balls
 (my mom's recipe)
 Purchase a large cooked ham (about 3 lbs), 2 lbs of fresh ground pork, eggs, oatmeal, milk, salt, and pepper.

Begin by slicing the ham into small strips. Place through meat grinder. (I use the kitchen Aide attachment for this)
 Add to the mixture of ground ham, the ground pork. Mix thoroughly.

 Add 1c. quick oats, two eggs, 1tsp. salt, 1tsp. pepper, and 1 1/2c. milk
Mix thoroughly.

After mixing, form mixture into palm sized balls, place into freezer bags in serving portion sizes. I like to make some bags for serving my family, and another for company.
Place in freezer, and or save a few to serve for dinner that day.

Ham Balls to serve for dinner
Place frozen ham balls flat into a greased baking pan. Bake them covered for 1 hour at 350 degrees, then uncover for an additional 20 min. Then add topping and bake for 10 more mins.
Topping choices: 1. Pour tomato juice over the ham balls and serve as a gravy along with the ham balls.
2. Baste with a sweet/sour sauce and bake for last 10 min.
Sauce recipe: 1/2 T. cornstarch, 1 T. lemon juice, 6 T. water, 1 T. vinegar, 1/4c. brown sugar
