Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites



I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.



Glazed Pineapple Kielbasa Bites
Makes about 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz.) regular Kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks, reserve juice
  • 3 Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet chili sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. pineapple juice (from can)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425-f degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place a piece of pineapple on top of a slice of kielbasa and stick a toothpick into them.
  3. In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients. Place kielbasa bites onto the baking sheet and brush glaze over tops and sides of bites.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until hot. Let cool slightly and serve warm.

    1. sweet chili sauce is found at almost all grocery stores these days, you just need to know what you are looking for if you haven't gotten it before. Thai Sweet Chili Sauce -- a homemade recipe is here: http://shesimmers.com/2009/02/how-to-make-thai-sweet-chili-dipping.html

      Here is an example of what a bottle looks like at the store: http://www.thaikitchen.info/index.php?page=sweet-chili-sauce-435ml

      Also if you do a search on Google for Thai Sweet Chili Sauce you will see tons and tons of images of bottles of sauce so you have a heads up on what to look for at the store.

      If you still cannot find it, you could try using a plum sauce, or just ask google, substitute for sweet chili sauce and see what comes up that you can use.

    2. I make a similar recipe using Heinz Chili Sauce (in the catsup aisle) with Apricot jam. Add a little mustard for more zing.

  7. Could you make these on the bbq?

    1. You could, but you would have to take into consideration that these pieces are a little small and might fall through the grate. You might have to put down a pan, or a mesh bbq sheet that prevents small pieces from falling through. As for the toothpicks... I'm not sure if there is much of a difference between oven and grilling for them. If your grill had flames too high they might get to the toothpicks and burn them ?

  8. How much of this can be made ahead of time? Assembling the Kielbasa and pineapple?

    1. Yes you could assemble them, as well as preparing the sauce and keeping it in a small tupperware in the fridge until you are ready to glaze them.

  9. Omg...these were delish! The longer they sat out and cooled off...the better they tasted!!! I wonder how this would taste on ham steak...instead of the kielbasa??? I reccomend this recipe!!!

    1. Thanks for the feedback Christene! I think a ham steak might work. One thing to keep in mind is depending on the type of ham steak, they tend to have water added to them. If they are over cooked or over baked they get tough and dry. So you'd want to test it out and make sure it didn't overcook.

    1. I buy the regular kielbasa from the Hillshire Farm brand. I looked online and I think it is probably this:

      Polska Kielbasa.
