Broiled Kielbasa Pineapple Picks

by R.B. Quinn and Min Merrell

Broiled Kielbasa Pineapple Picks is a fresh variation of the classic jam and mustard dressed meatball or sausage appetizer.

We rely on R.B.’s Aunt Kate, a veteran hostess and merrymaking ringleader in Melbourne, Florida, to keep us abreast of the latest trends in neighborhood party nibbles. She and her gang give particularly high marks at their cocktail recipe swap meets to dishes that score the lowest in effort and the highest in empty bowl.

A persistent favorite in Melbourne is the recipe genre known as sweet and sour meatballs or smoky sausages in an easy blend of mustard and jam. We’ve seen signature variations on this theme using just about every flavor of jam and mustard around.  In the end, they all work the same producing an easy sweet and sour sauce for the meat to lounge around in. Our variation calls for broiled fresh pineapple and kielbasa.
