Super Simple Smoked Sausage Kabobs

Fire up the grill and make these simple smoked sausage kabobs using garden fresh veggies. 
My favorite recipes are simple recipes that come together quickly. If that's what you're looking for, I think you're going to enjoy these Smoked Sausage Kabobs. I found this recipe a couple months back and couldn't wait to try it. My son loves smoked sausage so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes. 

The marinade can be prepared ahead of time and then placed in the refrigerator making this recipe even quicker to put together. We chose to grill our sausage kabobs, but you can also place them in your ovens broiler, which makes these kabobs perfect all year round. I think what I love most about this recipe is that I was able to use so many vegetables from our summer garden. 

All I had to purchase was the mushrooms, because we always have smoked sausage on hand. I'm so glad that we're finally using veggies from our garen. If your looking for a deliciously tasty, I think you'll enjoy this recipe.

Lets get started. First prepare the marinade and then add the sausage and vegetables; toss to coat. Drain and reserve marinade. Thread the meat and veggies onto metal or wooden kabob sticks. 

We grilled our kabobs on a outdoor grill until the veggies were tender and the sausage was heated through. I think fresh pineapple would also be a nice addition. 

Serve on a bed of white or brown rice and pair with a garden salad. 

Smoked Simple Sausage Kabobs

1/3 - cup honey
1/4 - cup spicy brown mustard
2 - tablespoons canola oil
1 - tablespoon soy sauce
2 - garlic cloves, minced
1/2 - tsp minced fresh ginger root
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 or zip lock bag, 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 made this recipe in the broiler last night. It was delicious! The only major change I made was adding more veggies, including summer squash.

When I saw this post last week, I just had to go check my veggies to see how long before I could try this recipe!! Today is the day - I just picked my first squash and zucchini this morning! Unfortunately, my pepper plants did not sprout and my cherry tomatoes have not blossomed, so store-bought will have to do! Can't wait to taste it all and thanks so much for the post!
