My sister shared this recipe years ago. I have served this countless times and it is always well received. The better the ham the better the results. This would be a great addition to a graduation party or any buffet. Serve it right beside your tried and true cheese ball.

How to Make Party Ham Ball

Step-by-Step

  • 1Chop or grind ham. Food processor or blender can be used. Blend other ingredients into the ham. Blend well.
  • 2If desired, mixture can be served at this point with crackers.My preferred method of serving is to chill ham mixture in a bowl for at least two hours. Then form mixture into a ball. Roll ham ball in a mixture of chopped pecans and dried parsely flakes. Ham ball should be served with a substantial cracker or sliced baguette. The ham ball mixture can easily be refrigerated for one or two days--but roll in parsley and nut mixture within 30 minutes of serving for best results.
  • 3I suggest using good ham. I also suggest using only mayo. This is a great recipe for leftover baked ham. You may find this recipe a good one be used for creativity. I've been intending to use chopped sun dried tomatoes in the mix but I haven't tried it yet.
