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.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz.) regular pork or beef Kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks, reserve juice
  • For the glaze:
  • 3 Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet chili sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. pineapple juice (from can)
  • for garnish: plain toothpicks

Directions

  1. Soak your toothpicks in water for 20 minutes before baking. Be sure to use plain (not colored) toothpicks. I learned from experience that the colored toothpicks will bleed and discolor the food.
  2. Preheat oven to 425-f degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place a piece of pineapple on top of a slice of kielbasa and place on the parchment lined pan. (I wait to put the toothpicks in until after I glaze. The reason being that if you get glaze on the tops of the toothpicks, it will burn in the oven.) 
  4. In a small bowl combine glaze ingredients. Glaze the kielbasa and pineapple bites. Stick each portion with a plain toothpick. 
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until hot. Let cool slightly and serve warm

    1. I think we might've gotten ours at walmart or another chain grocery store in the Asian food section as well.

  1. Oh wow, I've got to try these! They look so good!! And who doesn't like something easy to pop in your mouth? 🙂 Different subject, but I totally loved the quote where kids get jam on their hands even when there is no jam in the house! LOL I kinda know what he means! -Kay

  2. These look amazing! I love recipes with sweet chili sauce in them! They are so colorful too! I'd love if you would stop by and link this and anything else you'd like to my Super Bowl Eats and Treats Linky Party! You can link sandwiches, appetizers, desserts, crafts, parties, anything that says "Super Bowl" to you!! http://bit.ly/Lvc0q2

    Hope to see you there!

    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.

    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 ?

    2. You could try making then on soaked bamboo or metal skewers on the grill, remove them from the skewers to a tray and serve with toothpicks. Or, add green bell peppers and onions to the skewers, glaze it all and serve as kebabs!

    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.

  3. 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 think that is a option for those who didn't want to mess with a sauce, but I will say that the sauce for these does add a nice taste to the recipe and personally I wouldn't skip it. Thank you for your thoughts 🙂

  4. I made these for a party and they were a hit! Quick and easy to make, they were delicious. The glaze was a little thin for my taste so next time I make them, I'll probably try to thicken it up with a little more honey. Other than that, they were fantastic.

  5. I love this recipe.. Do you think you could dip the assembled pieces?? Or even could I assemble and leave in the sauce in the frige ahead of time.. I am not one to use a brush.. Silly I know but I just don't .. THanks.. I will use this weekend and see..

    1. Add all ingredients to a Ziploc bag and marinate? You could probably marinate overnight in the fridge, if you wanted to prepare them ahead of time.

  6. Sounds really yummy! My family has a serious addiction to kebabs, so we will definitely try these soon as whole kebabs with some bell peppers and onions served with rice! Thanks!!

    1. I would mix all the wet ingredients together to ensure that they are properly incorporated and then mix with the kielbasa & pineapple and cook in the slow cooker.

  7. To last for the duration of a party, would I need to keep these warm on a warming tray? Or do you think they'd be OK at room temperature?

    1. I have baked them then had them at room temperature and they are just fine that way. It is more of a matter of preference to you. If you think they will be out for an extended amount of time (several hours) then a warming tray would be very nice to keep them warm.

  8. I mixed the marinade in a bowl and then tossed the pineapple and kielbasa in it and then assembled them. Turned out great!

  9. This sounds amazing! My polish family always loves making kielbasa and look for different ways to serve for dinner or as appetizers at our football Sunday game time get togethers. I can't wait to try these! Do you use precooked sausages or has anyone tried using smoked sausage from the polish deli? If I do get the sausage from the deli, would I need to prepare/cook the kielbasa ahead of time (before assembling the snacks) or would the time it spends in the oven cook the sausage bites thoroughly enough?

  10. I find it simpler to mix my glaze, then stir the pineapple pieces and the sausage slices into the glaze. Grab a toithpick, pick up one of each, put on the pan. Better glaze coverage, and quicker. Thanks for the great recipe!

  11. I made these last night. They were absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Thank you for posting!! I will be making them again.
