Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray. Set aside

In a bowl, add the ground ham, pork, onion, mustard, eggs, crackers, salt, pepper and milk - mix well.
2Make balls about the size of a golf ball and place in prepared dish. It's okay if touching.
3Place on oven for 30 minutes or until firm and browning some.
4While ham balls bake, make the glaze.

In a dutch oven or large saucepan - mix brown sugar, mustard,cloves and cornstarch. Over medium heat, stir in the orange juice, whisk until well blended and continue cooking until sauce thickens.
5When ham balls are finished baking, drain if need be. Place in the sauce and simmer for 15 minutes.
6Serve hot. I've also prepared these ahead and kept warm for parties in crock pot on low setting.
