Grilled Meatball Skewers #OurFamilyTable

Quick and easy, these grilled meatball skewers are sure to become a family favorite.  Precooked, packaged meatballs alternated with summer squash, brushed with your favorite bbq sauce and grilled until warmed and glazed.


We are sharing grilling recipes today with the From Our Dinner Table Group.......

Grilling for Labor Day


We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too!


The recipe I'm sharing today is so easy a child can do it.  This is my Angel Face putting the meatballs and squash onto the skewers for me.


While my little sous chef worked on the skewers and I put rice into the steamer, my main sous chef made up some of his famous BBQ Sauce.


You can, of course, use your favorite jarred bbq sauce but Frank's sauce is the best, in my opinion, and it is very easy to make.


In the time it takes to make your rice you have a complete family friendly meal on the table.  You can use any vegetables you like but if they are going to require a longer cooking time than the meatballs take to heat up you might want to parcook them first.
