Potato and Onion Kabobs

This month our Taste Creations bloggers are sharing kabobs with you! We've taken many routes on the road to Kabobland, so there should be a kabob with your name on it here!

Kabobs are the perfect food for summer. I love all the summer-fresh produce that is available and I try to incorporate it in every meal. Kabobs are pretty, colorful, have lots of flavor and are easy to make. No excuses for not making kabobs this summer!

The key to a good kabob, whether it is protein-based or just laden with vegetables, is having a good marinade, basting sauce or BBQ sauce. The sauce provides the additional flavor that makes them irresistible. What makes a good marinade for kabobs?  Something that has a little bit of sugar, for the carmelization factor. I swoon over that bit of charred edge, that is sweet and smoky and melts in my mouth!

If you adore kabobs like I do, then you might also love this Sausage and Corn Kabob.  When the summer corn comes in, there is nothing better than grilled corn and the savory flavors of keilbasa or sausage!  Try this Hawaiian Hot Dog Kabob if you love pineapple! The two flavors are so good together!
