Sounds like a medical problem . . .

Would you care for a topical ointment for your Green Balls? This is not a joke; that is the real name of the next appetizer on The Historic Oven.

Mix together 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese, 1/2 cup minced cooked ham, 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard, 1 egg yolk, 1/4 tsp. salt, dash of pepper. Form into balls. Roll in minced chives or parsley.

8. Green Balls

This is not the first recipe to use raw egg in ready-to-eat food. Salmonella, ahoy! (I feel an Animaniacs reference coming on, but that’s better served on my other blog, methinks).

These were, basically, like a ham and cheese sandwich rolled into balls, sans bread, and with lots of greenery on the outside. I only had dried herbs, so they were especially pungent (and crunchy)! Not the best idea in the world. Not horrible, but meh.

Next time: raw eggs and chocolate? But it works!
