Reviews for Marinated Sausage Kabobs
"I doubled the amount of the marinade as the original amount didn't seem to be quite enough, and that worked well. My New Year's Eve guests loved the presentation and raved about the flavors. Toothpicks are not quite long enough, so I used the short bamboo skewers. Wonderful. I will make these again."
"My mother makes these all the time. Very quick to make and tasty. They disappear fast."
"Loved the marinade flavor, especially on the cheese. Served antipasto style rather than skewered as kabobs."
"What's not to like? These are simple yet packed with flavor. Present nicely. Easy to eat (I used frill picks bought at my local party supply). Plastic bag for marinating so nothing to wash but the tray I served them on. You can alter this so easily to suit your own tastes and still get wows!!! Thank you for a great recipe!!!"
"I made these for a Christmas party and they were a big hit. They are also easy to make."
"Can't wait to try for Super Bowl this weekend will come back and comment"
"Can't wait to try this recipe for Super Bowl party!"
"This was good. By the way, for the person who commented: Salami is cured sausage, fermented and air-dried meat, originating from one of a variety of animals"
"I'm thinking you could use summer sausage or beef stick or peperoni or ham or?? use your imagination!! cherry/grape tomatoes, onion etc etc etc."
"Excuse me, am I missing something? This recipe is called marinated "Sausage" kabobs. Are you considering Salami - sausage? I don't."
