Meatball Shish Kabobs Recipe

Meatball Shish Kabobs Recipe

Convenience foods make this hearty entree a snap to prepare. Purchased meatballs are easy to thread onto skewers. And since they're precooked, you just need to grill the kabobs until the fresh veggies are tender. Basting with bottled barbecue sauce adds fast flavor. -Shawn Solley, Lawton, Oklahoma
