Pineapple-Glazed Cocktail Meatballs

Pineapple-Glazed Meatballs
Here is a super easy 'throw together' meal if you have some ground beef lingering or already made meatballs. I made my own meatballs with some ground beef I had leftover. All I did was add a few tablespoons of Italian bread crumbs, one egg, and some onion powder in a bowl and combined it and then made my balls. I heated up some olive oil in a frying pan and fried them up (about 5 minutes on each side until the middle is no longer pink). Then I put them on a plate and dabbed some papertowel on them to get off the excess oil. To make the sauce, all you need is some bbq sauce and can of pineapple pieces undrained. Heat up the bbq sauce and pinapple pieces in another pan then toss back in your meatballs just to get them warmed up. Here is the recipe for the sauce from Kraft!

what you need

1/2 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup  undrained canned crushed pineapple in juice
30 frozen fully-cooked meatballs (16-oz. pkg.)

For extra kick, mix 3/4 tsp. each ground ginger and garlic powder with other sauce ingredients before stirring in meatballs.
