Ingredients

2-1/2 pounds ground ham
3 pounds ground beef
3 eggs
3 cups crushed graham crackers
1 can (12 ounces) 7-Up
2 tablespoons powdered onion

SAUCE:
2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed tomato soup
3/4 cup vinegar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
2-1/4 cups brown sugar

Instructions

Combine ham, ground beef, eggs, graham cracker crumbs, 7-Up and powdered onion; mix well.

Form into balls using either a 1/4 cup size measuring cup or 1/2 cup size. The 1/4 cup will yield 50 balls and 1/2 cup will yield 25 balls. Place in 11x15-inch or 9x13-inch shallow baking pans.

Combine sauce ingredients and mix well. Pour over ham balls and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
