I wanted a quick hot lunch for the weekend and when I saw this Kielbasa Apple Kabobs recipe on the Whole Foods site I new I wanted to try it. I had all the ingredients in our pantry and it looked so simple and flavorful.
10 to 12 bamboo or metal skewers
1 pound cooked kielbasa sausage
1 large onion
1 red apple, such as Braeburn or Gala apples, cored
1 tart green apple, such as Granny Smith, cored
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling.
Cut kielbasa, onion and apples into 2-inch pieces.
Combine in a bowl the lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper and salt. Pour over Kielbasa, apples and onions. Toss to coat.
Preheat grill to medium high. Thread pieces of sausage, onion and apple pieces on skewers, alternating them. Grill 3 to 5 minutes each side, until apples and onions are slightly blackened on edges, yet still crisp inside, and sausage is very hot. We broiled ours on high in the oven, 3 to 5 minutes each side. Serve immediately.
I served this with potatoes because it was was we had on hand but I sure wished I had picked up Sauerkraut. :) This simple recipe is definitely a keeper, sweet & salty deliciousness!
