This main dish is a nice change of pace from traditional sweet-and-sour meatballs. It's much quicker to make, too. For variety, I like to substitute a different kind of sausage, like spicy Italian.—Nova MacIsaac, Souris, Prince Edward Island


  • 1 package (12 ounces) uncooked sausage links
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage until a thermometer reads 160° drain. When cool enough to handle, cut into bite-size pieces; set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, vinegar and ketchup; add to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add pineapple and sausage; heat through. Serve with rice.
