Pineapple BBQ Meatballs

  • 36 (1/2 oz) Cooked Perfect® Meatballs, Homestyle or other variety
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle BBQ Sauce
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks with juice

In a slow cooker or large saucepan, mix your favorite kind of Cooked Perfect Meatballs, BBQ sauce and pineapple chunks (with their juice). Angus, Ground Turkey, Chicken, and Italian-Style are my personal go-to’s. Heat until everything is thoroughly warmed.

For an even quicker-to-your-belly version, microwave the meatballs per the instructions on the bag, toss them into a slow cooker with your favorite BBQ sauce (also heated in the microwave.) Then just keep them warm on a warm setting until you’re ready to eat!
