Holiday Ham Kabobs

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.

  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into chunks

  • Drain the pineapple, reserving 2 tablespoons juice; set pineapple aside (discard remaining juice or save for another use). In a saucepan, combine the juice, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon; cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  • Place sweet potatoes in another saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.
  • On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread sweet potatoes, green pepper, ham and pineapple. Brush with brown sugar mixture. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until heated through and peppers are tender, basting occasionally.

    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!!
