The holidays are all about family. My mother, Joyce, is a terrific cook and always put on the fete during Christmas.She is famous for her Holiday Ham Balls. I therefore dedicate this month’s recipe to my mom. Blessings to one and all. Yield: about 48 ham balls.

1 pound fully cooked ham, finely ground

1 pound ground pork

1 cup milk

1 cup crushed cornflakes

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 Tbsp ground mustard

1/2 tsp salt

For the glaze:

1/4 cup vinegar

1 Tbsp ground mustard

In a large bowl, combine all eight ingredients. Blend just until mixed.

Shape into 1-inch balls; place in a single layer on a greased baking pan.

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all glaze ingredients, Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved.

Spoon the entire mixture over the ham balls. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

Uncover and bake 15-20 minutes more or until ham balls begin to brown. Gently toss in glaze in the bottom of pan. Serve warm.

Enjoy, JW
