How to Make Ham Balls In Orange Glaze

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.
