Hawaiian Meatballs over Rice
This is a meal that I know everyone will love- and it only takes 30 minutes!!!
1 can pineapple chunks- drain, keep the juice for later
1 pound ground beef
1 cup oatmeal
1 whole egg
1/2 to 1 cup onion flakes or 1/2 to whole onion chopped- I use a lot of onion
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 TB pineapple juice sauce (sauce recipe is below)
Pineapple juice Sauce:
1/3 cup pineapple juice- from pineapple
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
first make the sauce- I triple the sauce recipe until I run out of pineapple juice. I like tons of sauce.
mix hamburger, onions, egg, oatmeal, salt, 3 TB pineapple juice sauce, and spices together- form balls out of hamburger mixture and stick a pineapple chunk in the middle of meatball. Fill up a 9x13 dish with meatballs until pineapple chunks are gone. Place plastic wrap over dish and microwave for 5 minutes. Turn meatballs, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for another 5 minutes. Add sauce and cook another 5 minutes. Done.
serve over rice.
