Italian sausage skewers are a unique way to serve sausages at your next barbecue. However, don’t let that delay you as you can also cook them in your broiler or grill inside!
Creating enjoyable, delicious looking food doesn’t mean you have to be a professional chef or spend an inordinate number of hours in the kitchen!

Italian Sausage Skewers
These are so easy, there is no real need for a recipe! So there’s no excuse to only make boring hot dogs and hamburgers at your next barbecue! Grab some Italian sausages (make sure they’re good quality; Italian sausages shouldn’t have ingredients like “sugar, corn syrup, nitrates/nitrites” etc.), and some chunks of veggies and skewer away!
I used onion and red pepper, but you can use any vegetables and/or mushrooms you like. Try using different colored peppers, zucchini, or pearl onions for example. If you use wooden skewers, soak them for about an hour first. Then just skewer away!
I like to make them all exactly the same, but that’s the Type A personality in me. Make them however you like them!
You can also put these under the broiler/grill if you don’t have the bbq going–that’s what I did this time, as I took these for a “Shakespeare in the Park picnic.”
And if you think they look delicious, they tasted even better than they looked!

- 5 Italian sausage links, hot or mild
- some onion, cut into squares

- Cut the sausage into 4 equally sized pieces.
- Starting with the pepper squares, thread the sausage and veg onto a skewer, ending with a red pepper at the end. Brush with olive oil if desired, but not necessary.
- Grill over a hot bbq or under a hot broiler, turning often, until fully cooked.
- Serve with rice, a salad, some potatoes or rapini and some fresh, crusty bread.
Feel free to use other sausage and other vegetable combinations, for example, bratwurst sausages. You can use mushrooms, green and yellow peppers and zucchini slices, too.
