  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, green onions, and garlic; cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer contents of skillet to a large bowl. Stir in ham, Cheddar cheese, and 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs. Beat 3 eggs; stir into ham mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Using your hands, make golf ball-size balls out of the ham mixture.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Spread remaining bread crumbs onto a plate. In a large bowl, beat 1 egg; stir in water. Dip balls into egg mixture, and roll in bread crumbs. Place balls in hot oil being careful not to crowd. Fry until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to soak up grease.

Great recipe! Delicious, better make plenty!

Quite salty even without adding the salt in the recipe. My husband really enjoyed them. Served with Honey Mustard sauce from this site and fresh vegetables to counter some of the salt.

This recipe is a good start but I found it far to "bready" for our tastes. I left out the added salt based on the advice I read but I ended up having to add salt while eating them. Next time I w...

These were alot of fun to make! I used 4c. of leftover Ham, and I used my "Slap and Chop" to dice up the meat, WORKS GREAT! We also made a cheese sace to go with them RECIPE FOR CHEESE SAUCE::.....
