Swedish Ham Balls 

This is my Grandmother's famous recipe. She got it from her mother. These are absolutely fabulous. I've seen fights over the leftovers. LOL

1 lb. Ground Ham
1 ½ lb. Ground Pork
2 c. Bread Crumbs
2 Well Beaten Eggs
1 c. Milk

1 c. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Dry Mustard
½ c. Vinegar (I use ½ white and ½ red wine vinegar)
½ c. Water

Combine meats, crumbs, eggs & milk. Mix thoroughly. Form into small balls & place in baking pan.

Combine remaining ingredients, stir until sugar completely dissolved & pour over meat balls.

Bake in slow oven (325 degrees) for 1 hour. Baste often. Makes 16 balls.

I usually double the recipe because they are so good and make great leftovers.
