1/2 pound pork sausage
1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Bake approximately 30 minutes, until cooked through and nicely browned, turning once.
Makes about 5 dozen 1-inch balls.
Sauce for ham balls
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in a scant 1/4 cup water
