A couple weeks ago I made Triple Bacon Meatballs that were inspired by Papa Murphy's Bacon Bacon Bacon Pizza. They turned out freakin' amazing!! I was so smitten with the idea of a pizza-inspired meatball that I decided to make another. This time I opted for a more classic and family favorite - the Hawaiian Pizza.
After rounding up the ingredients I was almost tempted to make a pizza. Almost.
But I remained strong and went through with the making of these delicious Hawaiian-Pizza Meatballs. They smelled absolutely fabulous when cooking, I couldn't wait to taste one! And after I tasted one, I couldn't wait to devour more - as did the rest of the family. We will most definitely be making these bad boys again, in the Hungry Harps kitchen! I'm thinking that these meatballs would be great for meatball sandwiches, adding cheese and pizza sauce. Or maybe as an appetizer served with sweet n sour dipping sauce. However, they're really good just on their own, so don't feel the need to get too fancy with them. Enjoy!
yields 30 meatballs
1lb ground pork
3oz. canadian bacon, diced
⅓ cup green bell pepper, diced
⅓ cup red onion, diced
⅓ cup pineapple, diced or crushed
2 tablespoons sweet n’ sour sauce. (I use World Harbors Sweet ‘N Sour)
1. Combine all ingredients in bowl. Let chill in fridge for 20 minutes.
2. Mix all ingredients together, preferably with hands to ensure complete mixing. Roll into 1.5” balls and either grill or bake. If using grill rack, grill for about 15 minutes or until turning golden-brown. If baking, place on baking sheet and bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until turning golden-brown.
3. Freakin’ enjoy!
