Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 1 pkg
- stove top stuffing mix (i use pork flavor)
- 1 lb
- lean ground beef (ground turkey works fine as well)
- 1/2 c
- bbq sauce
- 1/2 c
- crushed pineapple with juice
SAUCE FOR APPETIZER
1Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions.
2In a large bowl, add ground beef & stuffing. Mix well.
3Mold mixture into small meatballs. (I've used a melon baller, or a smaller size ice cream scoop, depending on what I'm using the meatballs for)
4Bake in 350 degree oven until browned. (You can also brown them in a fry pan on the stove top if you prefer.)
5You can use these with whatever sauce you like... Italian, Sweet & Sour, use them in soups or just as little appetizer meatballs.
6FOR PINEAPPLE SAUCE: In a large non-stick skillet, blend the BBQ sauce with pineapple. Add the fully cooked meatballs. Stir to coat completely. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes, or until heated through. Serve on an appetizer plate.
7** FOR FREEZING: You can make large batches of this and freeze for use in many recipes... flash freeze the meatballs on a cookie sheet for 1 hour before adding to a ziplock bag to keep them from sticking together.
