Everything is better on a stick. Or is that just my motto? I just love kabobs! They make normal food fun because they are bite-sized and usually accompanied with a gooey sauce. Am I right? Well this baby is no exception. It’s just a little twist on how you would ordinarily serve sausage and bacon. It’s sausage and bacon skewered on a stick and doused in an apricot bbq sauce. YUMMO!
These make a great brunch item and the kids love them! I love my bacon extra crispy but you surely don’t have to cook them as long as I did. Just keep an eye on them when they are in the oven so you cook them only as long as you want.
In a small pot on medium heat, add the jelly and let cook down until liquified.
Next add the barbecue sauce and stir. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes on low and set aside.
Cut breakfast links into 5 equal pieces.
Starting with the pointy side down on a skewer, slide the top of a bacon slice onto your skewer, then slide a piece of sausage, then slide the bacon under it, and repeat. Keep doing this until all sausage is on the skewer and finish it with the bottom of bacon. Place kabobs on a grill rack that has a foil lined sheet pan under it.
Brush kabobs with half of the barbecue sauce and place in the oven. Cook for 10 minutes then brush the kabobs with the remaining barbecue sauce.
Cook for another 10-15 minutes, bacon should be browned and cooked thoroughly.
* If you would like to serve sauce on the side double the sauce and set half aside before brushing the meat.
*If you don't like apricot jelly feel free to use any flavor you like.
