You guys know how much I love food, right?!

As much I love to eat, there are certain foods I haven’t enjoyed. One of those recipes is for meatballs. Crazy, right?! Fortunately, I’ve grown out of these childish, picky ways and have recently fallen in love with meatballs. What was I thinking before?! I’m thinking I had tried a bad version long ago and had decided all meatballs were bad. I’m so happy that things have changed and have now made different versions of this yummy appetizer over the past year.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Today’s recipe happens to be a new one we tried from Kraft that is now a favorite – Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs. I spotted the recipe in one of their magazines and it looked too easy and delicious NOT to try. I’m happy to report that they are beyond simple and SO tasty!! In fact, we liked them so much that the hubby and I ate most of them in one sitting. It’s bad, I know. You can enjoy these meatballs for dinner or can enjoy them as a side dish or appetizer. They’d be great for parties and get togethers as well. Just add toothpicks to them and let everyone chow down!

Here’s the easy recipe that only takes 3 ingredients:

I just made this for a cocktail get together happening this evening. I cut up some green pepper also because I needed to use it. I am very pleased. It is a yummy recipe and look forward to hearing what my friends have to say. It cannot get any easier than this recipe. I used the “Sweet Baby Ray’ Sweet & Spicy” sauce.

Thanks, love Pintrest

Will this work in a crock pot? I want to do these for a pot luck, but need to crock pot them. It sounds delish and a nice break from the grape jelly one that everyone makes.

    Lil' Luna

    I personally haven’t tried yet. I bet they would work. If you try doing that, I would love to know how they turn out! Thank you!

    Rhonda

    Yes, I made them in the crockpot. They were awesome. I cooked them on low for about 6 hours.

Jean McDowell

I would also like to use the crockpot
