We made these while on vacation with our extended family--our theme was "Hawaiian appetizers" and they were delicious. They were especially popular with the teens! We served them with other Hawaiian-type appetizers such as fruit with dip, etc. I will make these again!!!!

Sorry, these didn't do much for me and my BH. We felt that the sauce was too thick and didn't have much flavor. I think I would have used minced dry onions instead of fresh for more absorbancy, plus added a bit of water to thin out. The seasonings could have been doubled for a bit more flavor. I wish I could have enjoyed this more, we love grilling.
