Good Eating Monday: Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs!

Call them Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs or call them Hawaiian--either way this recipe from Pinterest I tried out is delicious!
I highly recommend it. Just 3 ingredients:
 frozen meatballs, barbecue sauce & crushed pineapple! 
Easy & tasty!
I served it as "Hawaiian Meatball Sandwiches," but it makes a great appetizer, too!
The recipe is easy to adjust to serve more people!

Now the original recipe was made on the stove top and heated in 15 minutes, but I doubled the recipe and heated it in a slow-cooker.
So you could do either. First the original recipe, then the doubled recipe for two bags of meatballs. 
In general, to increase the recipe quantity, you need 1/2 cup Barbecue sauce per 16 oz bag of meatballs. With the pineapple, a whole 20 oz can should be good for up to 3 (16 oz) bags.

Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs
1 (16 oz) bag frozen plain Meatballs 
1/2 cup Barbecue sauce
1  (8 oz) can crushed Pineapple with juice (or a generous 1/2 cup if you only have a larger can.)

Directions:
Combine ingredients in saucepan on stove, stir to combine and heat, until warm and bubbly, then serve either on buns or as appetizer.

Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs--Doubled for Slow-Cooker
2 (16 oz) bags frozen plain meatballs 
1 cup Barbecue sauce
1  20 oz can Crushed Pineapple

Directions:
About 2 hours before servings, spray inside of slow-cooker with cooking spray, then add meatballs, Barbecue sauce & crushed pineapple with juice, give a stir to combine, then cover and heat on low still hot. Once hot, you can turn down to "warm" for serving.

Serving:
Serve on hoagie rolls or wiener buns as a sandwich or over rice! 
We've been eating leftovers over rice---yum! 
If you get mini-meatballs, they make a great appetizer!

Eat up, me hearties, yo-ho!
