Ham Balls

Growing up, my mom used to make these yummy ham balls!  For some reason, EVERY time I have these I think of our dear friends, Carl & Sarah!!!  We love them, we did lots of growing up together with Hannah & Paul, they are special people!  Tonight I served them to Benjamin's Uncle Gary & Aunt Karen that stopped by for dinner while they were in the area! 

This is after they've been baked!

This is after I've pulled them out of the freezer overnight and before I've put them in a bag!

Ready to go in the freezer until I use.

1 1/4 lb ground ham
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground sausage or pork (could also do turkey)
1 1/2 c graham crackers, crushed
2 eggs
1 c milk
1 can tomato soup
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1 c brown sugar

Mix together all three meats, graham crackers, milk and eggs.  Mix until well blended.  Form into good size balls (I used the Jumbo Cookie Scoop) and place in a 9x13 pan, they can be fairly close.  In a saucepan, mix together the tomato soup, brown sugar and vinegar and bring to a slow boil.  Keep stirring as the sugar can burn quickly if not watching.  Once it's to a slow boil, take it off the burner and pour it over the RAW Ham Balls.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour. 

Note:  I will double the batch and freeze them on a cookie sheet overnight in my freezer, then break them apart and put them in a large Ziploc bags and pull out for later meals.  Often get three meals out of it when I do that and since I'm going to all that work anyway, it's easier to do all at once!!!
