Put first 8 ingredients into a bowl. Mix well adding a bit more milk if needed to hold shape. Roll into 1 inch balls.

Mix bread crumbs with paprika, coat balls and chill.

Mustard Dip: Mix mayo , honey and mustard in a small bowl. Spear smoked balls with wooden pick to dip before eating. Makes 1/2 cup dip and 32 meatballs. recipe from COMPANY'S COMING - Chicken Etc. by Jean Pare'

I added this recipe to the Family Favorites because Jim prepared this as an appetizer for a delicious duck dinner and I could have eaten them all by myself. JIm made them again a few days later and I ate most of them. This is a new family favorite around here~


  1. I just think the name is funny. When I called Dad Sunday and he said he'd be over after he ate his chicken nibbles I thought maybe he was getting into Hawk's food dish. =) Now that I see the recipe - they do look tastier than doggy chow!

  2. How very interesting and yummy looking! Thanks so much for sharing theses recipes and methods!

    I'm always delighted when you visit for afternoon tea my dear!

    Yes, most dogs would want some tea ggodies no doubt!~ (Wow, six Labs)!..,
