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!
And if you need some yummy eats to go alongside these kabobs, I would highly recommend cheddar, corn and bacon potato salad, bacon rice with corn or my classic spaghetti salad.
And don’t forget the veggies - you can grill your salad with my seared Romaine and easy cheater’s Caesar dressing or this easy summer salad with blueberries.
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! 🥃🍹🍸🍺🍷)

Love the sausage and pineapple combo, but with a good smear of BBQ sauce?!? Yes yes yes! Pinned to try! Cheers, dear friend!
Food on a stick in one hand, cocktail in the other - hello, summer living! XO
Looks mighty tasty! - If I were to give it a try I I feel like I would substitute in chorizo and give it a nice spicy kick 🙂
I love me some spicy food! Sounds fantastic!
Drooool. Considering asking the hubby to fire up the grill for a second dinner after seeing these. They look AMAZE!
Haha, I love a bonus dinner 😉 Thanks Karly!

Your weekends sounds SO epic! I'm a wee bit jealous. How fun. A Star Wars themed symphony is just the icing on the cake. These kabobs look great! Such a perfect summer dinner. Will definitely be trying it out!

a girl's boat day...how fun! so important to nurture those friendships! These look amazing, definitely a must have recipe for summer
Agreed! It's easy to miss out on that with busy work and family schedules, so we have lots of regular get togethers to stay close. I'm so lucky to have those friendships! And also agree that these kabobs are a summer must-have 😉

Sounds like you had another awesome weekend, Kathryn! A Star Wars themed symphony at the park? How cool is that?? I love food on a stick. Plus, these are grilled so no mess in the kitchen - woo hoo!! Funny story - I know you mentioned about soaking those sticks. There was this one time a long time ago that I decided to do cedar plank salmon and I didn't soak the wood.....absolute disaster to say the least. The wood caught on fire on the grill and the whole thing was ruined. Funny to think about it now and I always remember to soak now 🙂 These kabobs sound delicious! Love the sausage/pineapple combo - bit of savory, bit of sweet - yum!! Pinned, stumbled and yummed 🙂 Have an awesome week! XOXO
Haha, lesson learned huh?! And yes - the savory-sweet combo here is killer! And they are so easy to throw together 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing and have a great weekend my friend! XO
These look to die for! Summer is so ideal for kabobs!
