My mom has made these for years, I don't know where she got the recipe, but I love them. The sauce for these is good for more than just meat balls. It is also good for cocktail smokies, chicken, and pork. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.

Ingredients

MEATBALLS

2 lb
ground chuck
2
eggs
1/4 c
crumbled feta cheese (optional)
1 tsp
garlic powder
salt and pepper (to taste)

SAUCE

1- 1 1/2 bottle
barbecue sauce (kraft original)
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
2 tsp
lemon juice
1 c
brown sugar, light
1 can(s)
pineapple, crushed with juice
1
chopped bell pepper (fresh)
1/2
sweet onion chopped
2 tsp
mustard
1
celery stalk chopped (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Grab your crock pot and throw in all of your sauce ingredients, stir well and put on low or warm. I start with warm, but some crock pots do not have that setting.

2While your sauce is warming in the crock pot, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix WELL.

3Form meat mixture into approx. 1in. balls. Place in baking dish (preferably one with 1-2in sides or higher so grease doesn't spill on you when removed from oven).

4Place in preheated oven for 20-25 mins. Remove, drain grease from meatballs.

5Place meatballs in crock pot with sauce. Turn crock pot to high and cook for appox. 45 mins. stirring occasionally.

6Serve alone or with rice.
