An Easy Kabob Recipe
I’m not easily offended when it comes to fair food. In fact, I would say that I have a secret crush on fair food. Fair food is unhealthy, expensive, and kind of gross, but that is why I like it. There is something so satisfying about eating fried food and a lot of that has to do with nostalgia or Americana. Many of us have fond memories of our annual trip the county (or state fair). Schools would shut down for the week, 4-H animals were groomed and ready, and our bellies were hungry.
When it comes to fair food, my motto is BRING IT ON. I want all the cheesy fries, fried Oreos, funnel cakes, fried pickles and corn dogs. I convince myself that since I only eat this way once a year, calories don’t count. Sure, I regret the gluttony an hour into the fair, but I can deal with that.
The one fair novelty I cannot come to terms with is the turkey leg. I cannot tell you how much that grosses me out. I know, you’d think the fried butter would be the thing that pushes me over the edge but no, it’s not that…it’s giant turkey legs. Nothing makes me pucker quite like seeing gnawed on turkey legs. It seems barbaric in a way which is weird I guess because I LOVE eating things like dry rub chicken wings and spicy grilled drumsticks. I think it is the sheer size of the turkey legs that put me off, it just doesn’t seem right.
A kabob recipe is the best kind of food on a stick
This kabob recipe is my kind of turkey recipe! It is easy, quick and has such a great mix of sweet and savory flavors. This recipe utilizes store-bought turkey meatballs, veggies, pineapple and a little pepper jelly for a kick.
- Be sure your grill grates are sprayed with non-stick spray before you preheat your grill as the jelly will be sticky.
- If pepper jelly is not your thing, any BBQ sauce will do.
- Any meatball type can be used, I just like the flavor of these turkey meatballs.
- You can use turkey tenderloin in place of meatballs, the cook time will have to be adjusted.
- 1 package Turkey Meatballs ( I used Honeysuckle White)
- ½ red pepper cut into chunks
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- ½ cup pepper jelly
Heat the pepper jelly in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until thin. Reduce heat and keep warm.
Preheat an outdoor grill that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bring grill to medium heat. Thread meatballs, peppers, and pineapple on the skewers. Grill skewers for 6-7 minutes. Baste the skewers, cook an additional minute or until the peppers and pineapple are soft.
If using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them for at least 30 minutes prior to use.
