    Tara's Note:

    (I was given this recipe a few years ago). It is one everyone will ask for. I took it once to a Birthday Party and was asked for the recipe by at least 5 people including the host. These can be served for dinner on rice or taken to parties and kept warm in a crockpot until serving. They can also be made ahead of time and frozen.

      Tweaked the recipe a little. Didn't add green pepper or onions. Also used ground beef instead of ground pork. THese are really good! DH loved the sauce and wants me to serve it on chicken soon. Served over rice! Will make again!

      These were fantastic! I had been telling my husband about these that my mom made when I was younger. I made these exactly how it said to on here and they turned out great as far as flavor. I did put them in the crockpot with the sauce for about 30 mins after the oven just to soak up the juices. I served them over a bed of white rice. They were great! Fast, easy, delicious dinner and not too bad in the calorie department.

      The recipe was very flavorful, but a few things were off in the recipe. I didn't need to use the milk because the meat had plenty of moisture. The measurement on the crumbs was way off. I ended up using about 3 sleeves of Ritz crackers to try to get the ham balls to stick together better. I only used about half of an onion and half a green pepper because I thought it might have a little too much flavor for me to serve it to my young kids. The sauce was delicious.
