How to make it

  • For light & sour:
  • In large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add onion & garlic; cook and stir for 4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper.
  • Cook until bubbly, about 3 minutes.
  • Add pineapple tidbits with their liquid, the orange juice, soy sauce, cider vinegar, and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add 3/4 of the meatballs from the ‘healthy meatballs’ recipe to the sauce. (Remaining meatballs may be frozen for another use)
  • Stir gently and bring back to a simmer.
  • Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, until meatballs are hot.
  • Serve immediately over rice.
  • ======================================
  • For ‘Healthy Meatballs’:
  • Preheat oven to 400*F.
  • In large bowl, combine all ingredients except ground turkey; mix well.
  • Now add the turkey, and mix until well combined.
  • Shape into 36 meatballs, about 1 inch wide each.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick coating & arrange meatballs about 1 inch apart from each other.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden, and they register 165 on a meat thermometer.
  • Drain on wire rack over paper toweling.

    I always said only Mom could make sweet and sour meatballs the best, but it looks like this may beat her record. PLEASE don't tell her I said that.
    She'll kill me!
    But it looks real good and five points.
