I make a similar "spam meal with a glaze" and this recipe gave me an idea for a new recipe. The only difference in the ingredients that I use and this one is the ground beef, hot dogs and the salt and pepper.

I will use spam instead of the hot dogs (ground) and no salt because I find spam very salty already. and the rest of the ingredients are the same as mine.

The meatballs sound great and I will serve it with white rice like the "sweet and sour meatball with white rice" dish we know. Can't wait to try this. Thanks for the inspiration.

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. When ham loaf has baked 45 minutes, remove from the oven and drain off any fat. Pour basting sauce over loaf and return to 350 degree F oven for 15 more minutes, basting now and then with pan juices.

I'd love to make a ham loaf, but I never see ground ham anywhere. I have a meat grinder, could I buy a canned ham and grind it? Would it be too salty? What should I use?

Yes you can use canned ham, but it may be more economical to buy a small piece of ham, depending on how much ham loaf you want to make. I usually buy at least a 3 pound or larger piece of ham, make it all up in small individual ham loaves, and freeze them. Here is the recipe I use, and we love it.

1 1/2 lb ground ham

1 lb ground pork

2 cups waverly cracker crumbs (same as butter crackers)

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

1 lemon, juice and peel, grated ( many times I just use Real Lemon juice)

Mix together and shape into small individual loaves.

Glaze; 1 cup brown sugar,

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup vinegar

1 tsp dry mustard.

Heat sauce ingredients to dissolve sugar, pour over ham balls

Bake @325 for 1 1/2 hours. Spoon glaze over balls 2-3 times. ( the recipe says uncovered, but I do cover them when baking.)

I make these balls up, freeze, then wrap in saran wrap and put in one large bag in freezer. Take out as many as you need at a time, then make the glaze and pour over to bake. If I only make a few, I cut the glaze recipe in half.
