Holiday Ham Balls

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

The holidays are deadly to a diet because of things like this! You can just keep popping one into your mouth every time you pass by till you have accidental eaten them all. I got this from a friend in Sweden. *Using the coarsest grating disc of the food processor for the ham works perfectly. After you have grated the ham use it for the cheese.

I didn't believe the small amount of milk, and in fact used more, but far less than I would have expected: about a tablespoon. I used thin sandwich sliced ham and diced it finely. The result reminded me of a restaurant chain's cheddar biscuits, but different, too; and the small size invites popping one carelessly in your mouth each time you pass. (They don't have calories, do they?) Loved them!

These were fabulous! I used leftover ham from Christmas and I didn't have any spicy brown mustard so I used ballpark mustard and a added a few shakes of cayenne to the was great but next time I try it I will try the spicy brown mustard. I made a third of the recipe and it was just the right amount for the two of us. Thanks for posting! Made for Please Review My Recipe cooking tag game.

Made as written, with just a touch more milk to hold together. Although the taste was a fantastic combination. the balls themselves were too dense. This could have been from overhandling in order to keep them together, will try more milk and less handling next time. Made for PRMR 12/10.
