Mc Linky Monday-Favorite Christmas Dinner Dish

I couldn't find a pic of any ham balls I'd made so I had to 
steal borrow a pic from Taste of Home.

When I was growing up I never really had a favorite Christmas dinner dish and then I got married into the Wedemeyer family and found out about Iowa Ham balls and I LOVE them just as much as I love the Wedemeyer family!  These are my number 1 favorite dish that my in laws make, it's sooooooo good but we don't have them that often so I was finally able to get my MIL to hand over the recipe so I can make them myself, uhhmmm I just decided I'm making them tomorrow because I love them that much!  I was also told that this recipe comes from Iowa(where the Wedemeyer's are from) because they raise so much prize winning cattle and pigs and that it's a German, Dutch or Amish recipe (not sure which one it is but the Wedemeyer's are German).

Ingredients


3-1/2 pounds ground ham

1-1/2 pounds ground beef

3 eggs, beaten

2 cups milk

3 cups graham cracker crumbs

2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) tomato soup, undiluted

3/4 cup vinegar

2-1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

Directions

In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients. Using a 1/3 cup measure, shape mixture into 2-in. balls. Place in two large shallow roasting pans. Combine all remaining ingredients; pour over balls. Bake at 325° for 1 hour, basting frequently with sauce. Yield: about 15 servings.

So once again, I linked up with the ladies at the RHOK because they are awesome and I made a bunch of the recipes from the Christmas Cookies last week and they were amazing!!!
