How was your weekend? Did you have a big Father's Day celebration?
I had a pretty epic weekend, actually.
Saturday was my annual girls boat day up at the lake. We rode around, sipped on some drinks and tasty snacks, chatted and soaked in the sunshine and fresh air! We went back to my friend's house after, made some dinner and stayed up late talking and hanging out. A good day for the soul!
The next day we slept in a bit (so glorious) and then I finally headed home to shower my husband with some Father's Day love. 💕
I couldn't make him these cheesy grits breakfast bowls I just shared with you, but I packed us up a delicious picnic and we spent the evening at the park listening to the symphony. 🎼
It's a summer series they do every year and so much fun! (And this one was Star Wars themed, so we especially loved it!)
ALL kinds of fun 🙌 Now if I just had a couple more days to recover... 😳
But with summer fully underway (OK, it's not official until Wednesday but I'm declaring it summer in our area already), that means we are spending ALL kinds of time running around outside all day. Those kiddos don't stop!
And then we love heading to the grill at night!
Cause if you're like us, coming home, cleaning up and heading back out in PJs (kids... and maybe me 😉) and with drinks (us adults) is the perfect ending to the day!
So I’m bringing you these easy sausage pineapple kabobs with BBQ sauce. Featuring Hillshire Farm Naturals Polska Kielbasa Rope, made with pork and chicken.
The new Naturals line features products that have no artificial ingredients, no added nitrates and no MSG. That’s what I’m talking about! 🙌
These kabobs are perfect for parties because you don’t have to marinate anything ahead of time and you also don’t have to worry about getting your meat cooked through. It’s all set to go and just needs to be warmed up while the veggies cook!
Plus, I love having kabobs because well, food on a stick. 👍 Which is especially convenient at a party when you want to focus on your friends and family, not balancing a plate. Just grab a kabob in one hand, your drink in the other and go mingle!
And of course, these kabobs can be a main meal too - just load those kabobs up! You could even add some chunks of fresh Tyson chicken if you’d like to make some mixed kabobs!
So get on down to your nearest Kroger (which is Harris Teeter in my neck of the woods) and pick up some of this sausage (it's brand new and rolling out to stores NOW) so you can bring a strong kabob game this summer!
Notes on making sausage pineapple kabobs:
- Be sure to soak your skewers before you make these kabobs, so they don’t burn up on the grill.
- I used the Hillshire Farm Naturals Polska Kielbasa Rope for this recipe, but you could substitute their Turkey Kielbasa Rope as well if you prefer.
- You can use a homemade BBQ sauce or your favorite store-bought version.
- Adjust the number and size of your skewers depending on how you want to serve these. They make 4 as a main meal or about 8 as an appetizer.
I hope your summer is filled with warm nights spent outside by the grill, surrounded with friends and family and plenty of good eats. 😊
(And maybe some delicious drinks as well! 🥃🍹🍸🍺🍷)
- 1 (12 oz.) package Hillshire Farm Naturals Turkey Kielbasa Rope, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 1 cup fresh pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into ½-inch chunks
- 2 small zucchini, cut into ½-inch slices
- ½ small red onion, cut into ½-inch chunks
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ to ⅓ cup prepared BBQ sauce
- Preheat the grill to medium heat.
- Thread sausage and veggie chunks onto soaked skewers.
- Drizzle the kabobs with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.
- Grill the kabobs over medium heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the sausage is warmed through and the veggies are softened.
- In the last 2 minutes of cooking, baste with a brush of BBQ sauce.
- Remove the kabobs from the grill and baste again with remaining BBQ sauce.
This serves 4 as a main dinner dish or about 8 as an appetizer.
Be sure to soak your skewers before you make these kabobs, so they don’t burn up on the grill.
Feel free to add more or less veggies, depending on your tastes.
