Meal on a Stick Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 8 small red potatoes
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/4 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 24 pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 8 plum tomatoes, halved
  • 2 medium green peppers, cut into quarters

"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!"

"I would make this again but I think I would add onion ."
