Sausage Vegetable Kabobs

Most summer dinner prep includes turning on the grill. I don’t like to use the oven when it’s hot and humid outside! Kabobs are a favorite meal of ours. They are very easy and the kid’s think it’s cool to have food on a stick!


I was asked to participate in the Johnsonville Secret Ingredient challenge this month. I had to create a recipe using Johnsonville Premium Smoked or Cooked Sausage and peppers. Red peppers are a favorite of mine so it was easy to come up with a recipe!

Marinate Veggies Sausage

Combine the chopped vegetables and sausage on a dish and then let marinate for at least two hours. Add whatever vegetables you like- peppers, onions, squash and mushrooms are all good!

Sausage Kabobs on a Pesto Roll

I put some basil pesto on a hoagie roll and toasted it on the grill. When the kabobs were done, I took them off the skewer and added it to the hoagie roll. It was a messy, yet tasty sandwich!

Veggie & Sausage Kabobs
Recipe type: Main

  1. Mix the olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice garlic and black pepper together in a bowl. Set aside to use as a marinade.
  2. Chop the vegetables into chunks big enough for a skewer.
  3. Cut the smoked sausage into ½" chunks.
  4. Place the vegetables and sausage in a large dish and pour marinade over top. Marinate for 2 hours.
  5. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before threading the vegetables and sausage on.
  6. Slide sausage and vegetables onto skewers in whatever pattern you desire.
  7. Grill over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
