This "on the grill" dish has become a favorite at our house. The first time I made it, the kids thought it was a little strange -- usually we serve sausages whole. But as soon as they ate them, they decided it was not one bit weird. Not only do we get the fun of eating kabobs, but the sausages get nice and crispy on more edges. There is really no recipe involved. Just skewer pieces of pre-cooked sausages (each sausage cut in three or four pieces) along with some pepper pieces, onion pieces, you could use cherry tomatoes or mushrooms -- just use whatever you like. I usually use Hillshire Farms Cheddarwurst and Eckrich Jalapeno Cheddar Wurst, but I have also used pre-cooked andouille sausage and mild bratwurst. The key is buying precooked sausage or else you'll have a big mess on your hands. Skewer them and cook them on the grill as long as the package recommends. This is a great party dish -- you don't have to worry about cooking the meat through because it's already cooked, the sausage is not as expensive as beef or chicken pieces when you're serving a big crowd, and kids and adults love them.
