    A great way to use up any leftover ham, just grind ham in the food processor.

      I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this recipe at all! I followed the directions to the letter and there was just no flavor whatsoever to the gravy. I tried to liven it up a little by adding chive and onion flavored cream cheese. Granted, that did help a little, but not enough for me to want to make this again.

      MIghty tasty; loved the dill compliment to the ham and Dijon mustard. I baked them, instead of frying. *Big mistake!* Next time I'll frying them. Just made a thick dipping sauce to drizzle over the ham balls. This is yummy! Made for the Eggs/Dairy Event in Cooking Photos.

      I had seen this recipe in a magazine (contest winner!) and wanted to use up my leftover Easter ham. I didn't measure my ham, but after I processed it (in food processor) it seemed a lot so I doubled the rest of meatball ingredients. Everyone enjoyed, including two kids who balk at regular meatballs! I am serving leftovers with a can of cream of mushroom soup to stretch it out. I got at least 4 dozen meatballs out of the ingredients. Roxygirl
