This Ham Ball recipe was updated from a version in 1960′s entertaining bible “The Calvert Party Encyclopedia.” More like an “egg salad ball,” I ate these tasty leftovers for days after the MAD MEN party! (Calvert was a brand of whiskey popular in the 1960s.)

6 hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced chives
1/2 cup finely chopped prosciutto
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 cup finely ground walnuts

Combine eggs, chives, prosciutto, mayo, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Roll into 1/2-inch diameter balls and then roll in walnuts to coat. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

Makes about 40 balls
