Ham Balls in Barbecue Sauce

These very tasty meatballs are a great way to use up leftover ham. I love this dish with the bold blend of barbecue sauce and ham flavors. Perfect served over linguine or buttered noodles.

Sounds like a great dish to make for a church function or a nice fall evening!

Love your photos of the museum. I keep telling my hubby we need to get there! Well we went years and years and years ago, before we were married we went for a day into Philadelphia but haven't been back since!

Enjoy your day!
