Meatball Pineapple Smokies

When you walk into a party and you see a tiny crockpot set out with a little jar of toothpicks next to it, you know you’re in for a good time. Why? Well, that likely means that there are saucy little cocktail weenies OR saucy little cocktail meatballs inside and both are very good news. Who can resist those sweet and savory bite-sized morsels? Not me. And not anyone I know. But I have excellent news for you — there’s an even better cocktail appetizer you can make in your little slow cooker. It’s this — Meatball Pineapple Smokies! See, it combines both cocktail weenies AND meatballs AND pineapples too. It’s just as easy, just as saucy, and you get the best of both worlds.

What I love about this appetizer is that it’s no effort at all. I know a lot of recipes claim that — “This takes no work!” — but here it’s really true. All you’re doing is opening some packages and cans and stirring it all together. It really doesn’t get easier than that. And that’s especially exciting when the end result is something this delicious.



1 (12 oz) jar peach jam

1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce

32 oz frozen meatballs

1 (14 oz) package mini cocktail weiners, such as lil smokies

1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
