    breezermom's Note:

    These can be served as appetizers, or over rice as a main dish. The surprise is the chunk of pineapple in the middle of the meatball! This makes 4 servings as a main dish, or 8 appetizer servings.

      My husband enjoyed these. I believe there should be some salt added to the meat mixture. I also question the small amount of curry in this dish, as you couldn't tell any was there in the finished recipe. Liked the fresh bite of pineapple in and out and the meatball itself was nice and tender. Made for Photo Tag Winter.

      I made the full recipe using 400 gram can of pineapple in juice (for dietary reasons) and served over rice with a side of Dilled Carrots and some steamed baby bok choy and I was finding it hard to get through 3 meatballs (they each weighed about 45 grams raw and I normally make my meatballs at 30 to 35 grams) but the DM who would normally only get through 2 or 3 of our regular meatballs got through 3 of these monsters plus the rice and the side of carrots (she won't eat greens) - the most I have seen her eat in ages. Otherwise made as per recipe and had about a 1/3 of the sauce left over but that will go over the remaining meatballs and frozen for a future meal for one. Thank you breezermom, made for Photo Tag tag game (under 24 hour rule).
