  • 450g fully cooked ham, cubed

  • 450g of ground pork

  • 235 ml of semi-skimmed milk

  • 30 grams of crushed cornflakes

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 50g of brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Glaze

  • 200g of brown sugar

  • 60ml of vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard


  • Preheat your oven to 425°. Using the BergHOFF X5 Pro Food Processor, pulse the cooked ham in batches until finely ground.

  • Prepare the glaze by combining the brown sugar, vinegar and mustard in a saucepan over a medium heat until all of the sugar has dissolved.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, ground ham, milk, lightly beaten egg, packed brown sugar, ground mustard, crushed cornflakes and salt. Add half of your glaze mixture. Pulse again with the X5 Pro Food Processor to combine ingredients.

  • Shape the mixture into meatballs and place on an oven tray covered in baking paper.

  • Place the ham balls in the preheated oven and bake them for approximately 30-35 minutes or until they start to brown, and the meatballs are fully cooked.

  • Cover your cooked ham in the leftover glaze and toss until fully coated.

  • Serve with cocktail sticks or cook your favourite vegetables to create a well balanced meal!
