Smoked Sausage Kabobs

I LOVE kabobs, but have you ever noticed they aren't very photogenic!!! I've posted several kabob recipes and wasn't happy with the photo for any of them. I will admit to being a cook and foodie, but not a photographer. My skills are lacking in that department. I'm jealous of all you bloggers with gorgeous food pictures! Even though they weren't very attractive, they were really yummy. I think smoked sausage, onions and peppers on the grill are marvelous. My mouth's watering thinking about them! I hope everyone has a great weekend. Tomorrow I'm going to be off to the garage sales so keep your fingers crossed for good bargains. Enjoy :)

SMOKED SAUSAGE KABOBS
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
2 TBSP canola oil
1 TBSP soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp minced fresh gingerroot
1-1/4 pounds smoked sausage, cut into 1-inch pieces
16 cherry tomatoes
8 medium fresh mushrooms
1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, cut into eight wedges
1 small zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Add the sausage and vegetables; toss to coat. Drain and reserve marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread sausage and vegetables. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until vegetables are tender and sausage is heated through, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.

I love sausage kabobs. What kind of sausage did you use, beef or pork. Looks good.

Perfect summer food :)

Heidi said...

I don't remember what kind I used Chris... I think pork, but am not sure. I think any smoked sausage you like would work fine.
