Easy Party Meatballs

I saw this recipe on the Kraftfood site and thought I would try it out. I liked the flavor and texture it added. I also liked how many it made. I was able to put the extra in bags and freeze it for one of the "busy night" meals. I used turkey burger and I don't know if it is just more moist but I ended up changing (in green) the recipe a bit to get the right consistency. The changes made it easy and I think I ended up with quite a bit more. (3 cookie sheets full)

Easy Part Meatballs
1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef (2-3 lbs. turkey burger)
1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken (2 pkg.)
2/3 cup water (omit)
2 cans (8 oz. each) crushed pineapple, drained (1 20 oz. undrained)
1 bottle (18 oz.) KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce or KRAFT Hickory Smoke Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

HEAT oven to 425ºF. Mix meat, stuffing mix and water. Shape into 1-inch balls.

PLACE in 13x9-inch baking dish.

BAKE 20 min. or until cooked through (160ºF). Stir in pineapple, barbecue sauce and sugar. Bake 10 min. or until sauce is heated through.
