A little sugar and spice make these ham-stacked skewers oh-so-nice as an Easter entree. The colorful kabobs are simple to broil in the oven...or grill them outdoors if weather allows.

"What makes this dish amazing is the sauce. I also added zuchinni and used kobassa sausage instead of ham. I have a barbeque yearly for my tenants and this is their fav dish and is requested by all!!"
