Manhattan Meatballs

Celebrating the Superbowl next weekend? Well.. I usually am, whether I like it or not.
Here is one of my favorite crowd pleaser recipes, of course you cant have man parties without man food.... !

2 lb. ground beef
2 cups bread crumbs
½ cup chopped onions
2 eggs, beaten
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp. salt
1 jar (10 oz.) apricot preserves - if you cant find apricot, I have used orange marmalade and it's just as good
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1 med can crushed pineapple

Preheat oven 350. Make meatballs by combining first 7 ingredients. Cook meatballs in oven for 30 minutes. In saucepan, combine preserves, pineapple and bbq sauce. Cook until combined, about 7 minutes on medium heat. Pour over meatballs. Cook an additional 30 minutes on low. Serve with toothpicks.
These work well in the crockpot too. I make the recipe as directed and pour it all into the crockpot, but make sure to put on lowest setting or warm, because it will burn if left too long.
