Glazed Pineapple and Sausage Bites
I love the combination of pineapple and some sort of ham or sausage. When I stumbled across this recipe at Susannah's Kitchen I knew I wanted to give it a try. I had to change the ingredients for mine a little bit because I didn't have teriyaki sauce at home and didn't feel like buying a whole bottle for 3 Tbsp. Feel free to go to her site to find her original recipe. And this is such a versatile recipe - you really can use whatever sauces you have in your house.
So here is what I came up with.
1 package turkey kielbasa sausage
16 oz can pineapple chunks, save the juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos (if you are going for gluten free go with the coconut aminos or gluten free soy sauce)
1 Tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp pineapple juice
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut kielbasa into 1/2 inch pieces. Skewer the pineapple and sausage together with toothpicks. Place the appetizers in a shallow baking dish and set aside.
In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients to make the glaze. Drizzle the sauce over the kielbasa bites.
Bake for 15-20 minutes and serve warm.
