Pineapple-Glazed Meatballs

Ah summer is here, with a vengeance. Soon even the cool evenings will be gone and we will be left with heat to sit and puddle in. So in anticipation of that very thing I plan on arming myself with simple and quick and possibly even heat proof recipe. This is the first one dedicated to summer. Yes, summer kicks but we can kick back.

I came across this recipe fairly recently, actually more than fairly, like two days ago on a blog I find myself coming back to again and again, Real Mom Kitchen. I love that she whips up simple fair because let’s face it as much as I like to eat fine cuisine there isn’t always time for it, or the want for it. (Okay, you got me; I really don’t eat fine cuisine. The finest thing I eat would be crème brulee or crab legs, oh or oysters, fancy right?)

This recipe handles both obstacles, needing something simple and something that won’t force me to kick the AC down to 60 degrees. Oh and did I mention how amazing it is? So tasty that Baby Cakes took the leftover meatballs and some bread to work to fashion his very own meatball sub. (Perhaps a future blog post?)

Pineapple-Glazed Meatballs
recipe from Real Mom Kitchen

1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1 (16 oz) package fully cooked frozen meatballs
cooked rice

In a skillet combine the barbecue sauce and pineapple together. Add meatballs and stir until coated.

Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through.

Serve over rice.

Serves 4-6.

Amazing. So simple and the kitchen wasn’t a 100 degrees when I was done.

Love. Love. Love.


  1. You guys are already getting some super hot temperatures, arent you?? I would be all about not turning on the stove at all! It would be asummer of whatever I can cook on the grill!!! I feel like my hubs would adore those meatballs!!!

  2. You know, today's not bad. It's only 80 degrees buy that's because it's been overcast all day. Not that we're gonna see any rain but I'll take the break in sunshine. Honestly, it hasn't been too bad yet. Yet being the key word. It is probably the weirdest spring I have ever encountered.

    I was think of ways to play with this recipe and I think turkey meatballs with cranberry sauce would be amazing. Yes, I think all hubby's would gobble this one up. Us too though. They are really good. One day I'll make them with homemade meatballs to thier a bit more moist but they are are awesome even now.

    Whew, I am long winded with you girl! Feel like we've been friends forever.
