Hawaiian BBQ Meatballs-Oven baked or slow cooker recipe

I love snack foods! As if you didn't already know that:@) I whipped up these Hawaiian BBQ Meatballs the day I saw them and they will be making another appearance during football season! They call for common pantry ingredients and are tangy and sweet, love the pineapple! If you use frozen meatballs they come together in no time.

Serving a big crowd? 
How about increasing the sauce and adding a pack of those little cocktail weenies too!

Hawaiian BBQ Meatballs-from Hidden Ponies' mom
1/2 tsp salt-I didn't add this
2 Tblsp corn starch
3 Tblsp brown sugar
1/2 C ketchup
1/4 C white vinegar
2 Tblsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tblsp soy sauce
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
24-30 meatballs-I used frozen
  1. Mix everything except meatballs in a large baking dish or slow cooker vessel. Add meatballs and stir gently to coat. 
  2. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours removing the foil for the last 15 minutes. Or use your slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. May be be served with rice, or fun food picks for parties.


  1. They look awesome, love the individual stick servings! Thanks for linking :)

  2. My grandsons would devour these in minutes. Who could blame them. They sound delicious! Ihope your weekend is off to a great start. Blessings...Mary

  3. That is a great idea for a crowd - they look good and people will love them.

  4. I am copying this one for the next time I need to bring food to a quilt guild meeting! Other than the soy sauce, I think this might be gluten free. I'll have to check that for sure, but either way, I'm sure they will be a hit with the quilters.
    Thanks come up with some of the yummiest foods that are EASY!

  5. Since football season is starting it is only fitting to start the football snack recipes! I'm sure the pineapple adds a delightful flavor to these.

  6. Oh, here you go with another mouth-watering temptation!

  7. In 8th grade home-ec class we made hamburgers topped with a pineapple slice. I thought it would be horrible to mix fruit and meat - but found it very, very good. Ever since then I have been up for any mixture of beef and pineapple and these look awesome!

  8. I do love some meatballs for a party and these look good and easy!

  9. So delish! Mmmmmmm! These would be great to serve at football time, or for a Hawaii-themed party. Have a blessed weekend, Lynn.

  10. Oh my, I used to make something like these when I was first married (early 70's) and they were called Waikiki Meatballs and the recipe was from my only cookbook at that time..Betty Crocker. I had forgotten all about them but they were sure good. Thanks for the reminder. xo

  11. These wouldn't last long around my nephews.

  12. What a great combination of flavors Lynn, and so easy with frozen meatballs and s slow cooker!

  13. This would be something different for me - I need to try them.

  14. Add pineapple and I will love it! Very tasty meatballs for sure !

  15. Oh, boy, do these look terrific! Might be a perfect dish for my book club...they'd love it!

  16. Lynn, this recipe looks right up our alley! Thanks you!!
