If you like the outer glazed area of ham loaf, you will love Amish-style ham meatballs. The ham meatballs have more glazed goodness plus the flexibility of being meatballs. While they can still be served as part of the main course, they also can be served as hors d’oeuvres.
Inspired by several recipes in some of my cookbooks from Amish/Mennonite communities, I made a couple slight adaptations to my ham loaf recipe to make my version of Amish-style ham meatballs. I like to use a slow cooker to finish and serve meatballs whether at home or at a gathering, so I cook the meatballs and the sauce separately and combine them in the slow cooker to slowly simmer together. You can just bake the ham meatballs in a baking dish/pan pour the sauce over them as they cook.
