Meal on a Stick

My husband and I were thrilled to receive a gas grill as a wedding gift from some church friends. We love to grill these hearty meatball-and-veggie kabobs. Barbecue sauce gives them a slightly sweet flavor. —Sundra Hauck, Bogalusa, Louisiana

    Potatos need to cook longer in the microwave to allow the meat and vegetables to be done at the same time.

    Yum! Only problem-some of the meatballs fell off. I used at least 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and cherry tomatoes. Next time I'll use more veggies, maybe add some onions, less meat, the peppers were delicious!
