Ham Balls


This is my newest, favorite meatball recipe. If you like a sweet twist, you'll like this one. The meatballs will be slightly pink inside when done because of the pork, so do not overbake them!

8 servings


  • 1 ¼ pounds ground smoked ham

  • 1 pound ground pork

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can tomato soup

  • ¼ cup cider vinegar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, combine the ham, pork OR sausage, and the ground beef. Stir in the milk, eggs and graham cracker crumbs and mix well. Form into large balls about 2 inches in diameter and place them in a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  3. In a separate medium bowl, combine the soup, vinegar, brown sugar and mustard powder. Mix well and pour over the meatballs.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until internal meat temperature reaches 160 degrees F (73 degrees C).
