1 pound ground ham -- (this works out to 2 1/2 cups)
1 pound hamburger -- or 1/2 pound hamburger and 1/2 pound sausage
1 cup fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups brown sugar
4 tablespoons vinegar
4 tablespoons water
2/3 teaspoon dry mustard
2/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons chopped onion -- (or enough onion powder)

Preparation / Directions:

Combine all ham ball ingredients EXCEPT meat. Work in meat. Form into balls. Place balls in 9x13. Combine all glaze ingredients in small saucepan. Heat until sugar is dissolved and all is blended. Pour heated glaze over raw ham balls. Bake at 350 for 1-2 hours, basting frequently. My grandmother usually bakes them "a while", then drains them, THEN pours the glaze over, so the sauce isn't so fatt
