Kielbasa-Apple Kebabs

Being of Polish descent I grew up eating kielbasa. I still love it, especially when it includes a nice
little char from the grill. However, what's nice about this recipe is that kids love it too. The apples,
peppers and sausage receive a nice sweet-glaze, making this recipe very "family-friendly" and
so simple to put together.

I have to admit, we have an indoor grill so it makes it very easy to grill up things like this in the middle
of winter...yes, it was snowing this morning.  I have truly forgotton what it's like to live in Southern
California where it's sunny almost all of the time. It's almost as if it has been erased from my memory
banks. Oh well, life is good in Oregon too, just in a different way.

Enjoy this one, the family is going to love it.

    We have hunters in our family and we have gobs of venison sausage on hand. That is a great way to cook and serve them. Everyone will love them that way.

  2. I made a double batch of this last night on the out door grill. Substituted Butterball Turkey Sausage (only because they didn’t have Kielbasa), and everyone loved it. No leftovers this morning as is the norm. Another great recipe. May stick with the turkey sausage when I make it again.

    The grill is part of my Wolf range.

    As a fellow Pole, I am intrigued by this recipe. I’ll have to try this summer with the good authentic kielbasa from the Polish Market at the end of my street.


    They look delicious, I love kielbasa and the combination with apples seems like a great idea. I am definitely going to make these this weekend.
