Well, these babies didn’t last long in the freezer. I made up 2 batches of BBQ meatballs over the weekend, in an attempt to prepare myself for the back to school frenzy…and here is the first of 2 new recipes using BBQ meatballs. (I hope to share the other next week…if I get it made in the next few days!)
Zucchini is uber cheap these days, and we had some extra canned pineapple from yesterday’s school lunches that I added to the skewers too. Because I had the meatballs already made, this meal worked out perfectly “timing wise,” as I started the grill and then skewered everything up and by the time I was finished, the grill was hot and ready to welcome the kebabs!
AND…I love that this is a “one-dish grill dinner” too! Hope y’all enjoy these kebabs!
