Serves 18

2 eggs, beaten

¼ cup flax meal

½ cup onion, finely minced

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon black pepper

12 ounces cooked ham, ground

12 ounces ground, raw pork

For the BBQ Sauce

⅔ cup natural ketchup

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons dijon mustard


In a large bowl combine eggs, almond flour, flax meal, onion, coconut milk, Dijon, and pepper. Add ground ham and ground pork; mix well. Shape into 18 balls, using about ¼ cup mixture for each ball. Place ham balls in a lightly greased 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
