i WILL try to condense this story, years ago my Grandmother made ham balls. BECAUSE I was her favorite granddaughter and I said I "loved" them, they became the weekly special at Grandma's sunday dinner table. Needless to say, her hamballs were very salty and not a big favorite with anyone but me. Grandma left her entire recipe collection with me when she passed away 5 years ago this month. All except the HAM BALL recipe. So, I began the search, I knew what the basic ingredients were, I found this one... it seemed to be the closest to hers. So, for my "easter suprise" this year, I made and brought these ham balls. Everyone laughed, and a few cried, but one thing was for sure, everyone LOVED these! They were not salty (believe it is the beef that mellows them) and there were none left. Thank You smiles... We all thank you for bringing back memories for our family. P.S... Have the butcher grind your meats together, it is ALOT easier and it doesn't cost you any more.
