Italian Sausage Skewers

Discover the story
It's summer time and cooking skewers on the barbeque is pretty much a mandatory seasonal meal

Everyone seems to love a good skewer and this Italian Sausage Skewers recipe is super easy to make and delivers! What is great about this recipe is that you can get creative with your favorite sausage — go for hot, mild, chicken, whatever you want.

These skewers can be assembled in about 10 minutes and there is no marinating required, just an easy brushing sauce! As always, work with what you have in your produce drawer. We made our skewers bright and colorful with bell peppers, tomatoes, and onions.

And of course, we love that this $20 Tuesday recipe comes in under $20!
