Teriyaki Kielbasa & Pineapple Bites

kielbasa bites

The first time I made this, it was devoured.  It was winter, and I made them in the oven from a Pinterest recipe that I had found.  Huge Success. Not so much for the eating of them, but the making is so easy that I knew I would repeat these for another party.   I love the combination of the kielbasa and pineapple in this little bite- Since I recently wanted to make these, but I was not up for lighting the grill, and it was too hot to start the oven…I made these on the stove in a skillet and they are great!

It is so easy:

Teriyaki Kielbasa & Pineapple Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey kielbasa
  • 1 large can pineapple chunks (juice reserved)
  • 1/3 cup of your favorite teriyaki sauce
  • 1/3 cup of the reserved pineapple juice
  • 1 TBSP. brown sugar
  • toothpicks

Instructions

Open the pineapple and drain the pineapple, reserving the juice.

Mix together the teriyaki, the 1/3 cup of the pineapple juice, and brown sugar. Set aside.

Spray a non-stick pan and heat to medium.

Cut and saute the kielbasa. Flip once browned on one side. The pieces should be flat, and not overlapping.

Lower the heat to medium-low, and top each piece with a piece of pineapple.

Gently pour the sauce over the kielbasa and pineapple and then cover and let these heat on LOW for 5 minutes.

Turn the heat off, and spear each piece with a toothpick. Remove to a serving platter. When you have them all out of the pan, spoon the juice from the pan over the bites. Serve.

These are great for the summer because they can be left in the heat outside without spoiling and they are a great, easy to eat, food with the toothpicks.  There are lots of teriyakis out there but I love the Soy Vey Very Very Teriyaki…so good, and not too salty.
