Sausage Shrimp Kabobs Recipe

Sausage Shrimp Kabobs Recipe

We love these full-flavored kabobs and fix them often, even in winter. A sweet sauce is used to baste and later serve alongside the colorful combination of sausage, bacon, shrimp, vegetables and pineapple. —Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
