Updated April 22, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup spicy barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 12 bite-sized wedges
  • 12 frozen cooked light Italian meatballs (about 9 oz.), thawed
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 12 (1/2-inch-thick) slices
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 12 pieces

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix barbecue sauce and honey; set aside.
  • 2
    Place onion wedges in small microwave-safe bowl; cover. Microwave on High for 30 seconds or just until crisp-tender. Alternately thread meatballs, zucchini, bell pepper and onion evenly onto three 12 to 14-inch metal skewers.
  • 3
    When grill is heated, place kabobs on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cover grill; cook 10 to 15 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly heated and vegetables are crisp-tender, brushing with about half of the barbecue sauce mixture once or twice, and turning kabobs frequently. Serve kabobs with remaining barbecue sauce mixture.

  • To broil kabobs, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, brushing with about half of the barbecue sauce mixture once or twice, and turning kabobs frequently.
  • No spicy barbecue sauce on hand? Just add a few drops hot pepper sauce to any barbecue sauce for this recipe.
  • Look for turkey meatballs if the light variety is not available in your area.
  • Pick up an Italian vegetable salad from the deli to serve with these tasty kabobs. Add warm crusty rolls to round out the menu.
