Weekend Recipe: Sweet and Sour Meetball Kabobs

I found a recipe several weeks ago on Kraft Foods and just got around to making them one day recently for lunch. They were absolutely delicious!

Here's my version:

Sweet and Sour Meatball Kabobs
32 (1-inch) fully-cooked meatballs (homemade or frozen and thawed)
1 red pepper, cut into 1-inch squares
1 green pepper, cut into 1-inch squares 
1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits
1/4 cup apricot or peach preserves or jam
1/4 cup your favorite BBQ sauce (I like Famous Dave's)

Thread meatballs, peppers, and pineapple alternately onto 8 skewers. (My layering went Meatball, red pepper, green pepper, meatball, pineapple, green pepper, meatball, etc.)

Microwave jam in a small bowl on high for 15 seconds, then stir in the BBQ sauce.  Brush half of this mixture onto the kabobs.

Grill 8-10 minutes until meatballs are heated through, turning occasionally, and brushing with remaining sauce mixture.

YUM. They were so fast to make that they have become a weekday no-leftovers-in-the-fridge lunch STAPLE for us. Try them before you put your grill away for the winter (if you do that sort of grown-up thing...) - they're amazing!

We made that recipe for meatballs a few months's delicious!! But we didn't use it for kebabs, they went over rice.
