Meatball Shish Kabobs

easy fast meatball shish kabobs

Meatball shish kabobs (or any food creatively arranged on a skewer) are a fast and kid-approved dinner, and an easy fix on a busy night. I always keep meatballs pre-made in the freezer for faster preparation. Any variation of shish kabobs can be a great way to mix up a meat and veggies recipe.

Kabob Variations:

My favorite version  is a pineapple meatball with apples, pineapple, and onions, but there are so many ways to mix up a basic recipe like this:

  • Italian spices can be added to the meatballs and grilled with tomatoes, onions, etc. for an Italian variation
  • Cumin and chili powder can be added to the meatballs and grilled with peppers and onions for a Mexican variation.
  • Any leftover meat or veggie can be reheated on a skewer to make it kid-friendly.

My kids even love fruit salad or chopped veggies on a on a bamboo skewer and will often suggest some type of kabob when they get to make dinner.
