Meatballs-in-a-Hurry

This is one of those dishes that can be put together quickly...with pre-cooked frozen meatballs and a few ingredients that I usually have on hand. Simple and delicious.


  • 2 lbs. frozen pre-cooked meatballs
  • 1 green pepper (cut into chunks)
  • 1 red or yellow pepper (cut into chunks)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 14 oz. can crushed pineapple 
  1. Arrange meatballs in the bottom of a casserole dish.
  2. Spread pepper pieces evenly over the meatballs.
  3. Combine ketchup, water, brown sugar and onion soup mix.  Stir in crushed pineapple and mix well.
  4. Spoon evenly over the casserole.
  5. Bake covered at 350°F for about 1 hour.
  6. Serve on a bed of rice.
  7. Serves 8
If you live in the Fraser Valley...be sure to stop by Neufeld Farms for a large assortment of Super Bowl snacks....and of course..the Frozen Meatballs.

      1. Isn't it funny how everyone has a slightly different recipe for "sweet and sour" meatballs? I lost my favourite recipe, but maybe this one will become my new favourite.

      3. I've had the same sauce on chicken strips. Baked nearly done, then tossed in the sauce and finished on an outdoor gas grill. Pretty tasty BBQ sauce that way!
