We were blessed to have family visit us for Easter weekend. Not only did we celebrate the Easter holiday with good times, but my favorite 10 year old cowgirl/chef celebrated her 11th birthday.
One of Megan’s favorite meals is hamballs. The meat dish is actually a Cozad tradition and is made from ground ham. My husband is a master at preparing them, and he and Megan always have fun when they create their masterful hamballs together.
Hamball needs: Two pounds of ground ham loaf, one egg, two pieces of shredded whole wheat bread, one handful of oatmeal, twelve shakes of pepper, eight shakes of minced onion, six shakes of tarragon, four shakes of garlic powder, a generous helping of parmesan cheese.
Sauce needs: Cup of water, 2 and 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar, and 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar. Mix the liquid ingredients together and pour over the hamballs. Cook an hour in a 400 degree oven.
Enjoy! After all, they have the birthday girl’s seal of approval 🙂
