Ingredients for Meatballs:
1 lb. hamburger
1 slightly beaten egg
1 c. cracker crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
I sometimes add a little pork sausage it makes the meatballs more moist.

Other ingredients:
˝ lb. cocktail wieners (you can use more if you want)
1 c. green peppers cut in bite size pieces
1 16 oz. Can pineapple chunks
1 7 oz. can water chestnuts
18 oz. barbecue sauce (Kraft original Bar B Q sauce which has no garlic).

Directions:
Directions:
Combine first 5 ingredients, form into small meatballs and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until brown. Meatballs can be made ahead and frozen until ready to use.

Mix meatballs with cocktail weiners, green peppers, pineapple chunks, water chestnuts. Add barbecue sauce (I use just enough to cover the ingredients) teriyaki barbecue sauce works well too. Heat in oven or crock-pot. Great for large parties.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was brought to a work Christmas party and every person wanted a copy of the recipe. I got a copy and make it for all family parties. I make it especially for my cousin, little Kimmee, as she is deathly allergic to garlic. We in our family call it Kim’s appetizer. It is easy to make, can be doubled for a larger party or make just half for a smaller group. It also freezes well. The meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen until ready to use. The cocktail wieners can also be frozen ahead of time. It can be assembled when ready to use, put in the crock-pot, heated and kept warm. As Jim, Aesop’s grandfather says, “you have to take one of these and one of these...” to make sure you eat one of each item in the appetizer. Believe me, everyone will love it.
