Ham Balls in Pineapple Sauce

1 recipe Ham loaf.

Roll meat into 1 inch balls. Set aside.
Make sauce.

  • 2/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
  • 2/3 cup ketchup

Pour sauce over balls and bake 350 for 1 hour. Cover first 30 minutes with tin foil and uncover for remaining 30 minutes.

Ham Loaf

Breno's friend from school gave us this recipe. It is delicious with left over ham from the holidays.

  • 1 lb ground ham (I grind this myself)
  • 1 lb ground pork (for a spicy loaf substitute in 1 lb sausage)
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs (I use stuffing mix as I always have it on hand)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use water with the stuffing mix and it turns out fine-for diary free)
Mix all ingredients. Put in loaf pan. Bake 350 for 1 hr (160 degrees inside). Cover with foil first 30 minutes and then remove remaining 30 minutes (optional). Spread with ham glaze afterwards (store bought) or 15 minutes prior to finishing, I sprinkle top with brown sugar and squirt on some ketchup.
