Polynesian Meatballs

Just last week I was flipping through a magazine and found this recipe for Polynesian meatballs.

I saw that the recipe called for cool ingredients like pineapple, brown rice, green onions, ginger, nutmeg, and teriyaki sauce. I love recipes that have loads of flavor and this one definitely did.

The recipe uses some of the ingredients to make a sauce to dip the meatballs in. I think the sauce was my favorite part. It had pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and other spices. Plus it was served warm.The recipe made a lot of meatballs and the leftovers were delish!
