Ham Balls With Sweet & Sour Sauce

3 lbs ground ham (or 2 lbs ground pork and 1 1/2 lbs ground ham)
3 cups soft bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs

Blend these ingredients. Form balls about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 375° . Spoon over the following sauce.

1 small can pineapple juice (or juice from a 15 1/4 oz can pineapple drained)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 c brown sugar
2 TBSP corn starch
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp chili sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Mix together the pineapple juice and remaining ingredients. Stir until blended well. Cook stirring until thickened. Add pineapple chunks if desired. Spoon over ham balls. Serve with rice.

Frozen instructions:
Thaw ham balls and reheat in oven or microwave. Thaw sauce and reheat on stovetop.
Serve over cooked rice.

We like ham balls plain without the sauce too. They make a nice side with scrambled eggs and waffles for dinner.
