Three Ingredient Hawaiian Meatball Appetizer -Little Dipper Slow Cooker & Larger

I wanted a nice easy appy and these Hawaiian Meatballs fit the bill:@) Frozen meatballs, BBQ sauce and canned pineapple are all that's required, sesame seeds and chives or scallions for garnish might be a nice touch too. If you're looking for a dinner idea instead of a snack, simply serve over rice and add a veggie on the side. I also liked that this was a slow cooker dish, mix, cover and let cook for a few hours. Slow cookers can be great kitchen helpers in the summer as temperatures begin to heat up. I made a small batch in my Little Dipper Crock Pot, you can click the link for a larger version. 
We were grilling a ham steak for dinner,
I just used two pineapple rings for these meatballs and grilled the rest of the can.
