…and then there is food. I don’t blog because who wants to sit in a cold dark basement and write, when you can prepare yummy food?
This past week, my youngest, Bearly, clicked “ACCEPT” on his invitation to attend American University this fall.
We decided to celebrate with a Red White And Blue breakfast…
In addition, last week, one of the Symphony Babes shared a recipe she found – Breakfast Kabobs with Apple Cinnamon Barbeque Sauce, that I was anxious to try, so….
For the sauce: 1 cup barbecue sauce, 3 Tbsp apple jelly, 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
For the kebabs: pork sausage links cut into 1 inch pieces, 6 strips thick sliced bacon, skewers
It helps to line a baking sheet with foil then top with a cooling rack. Coat the rack with non-stick spray.
Here’s where me and the recipe parted ways: I used 1/2 cup of the BBQ sauce, and the ENTIRE JAR of the apple jelly, along with increasing the paltry amount of cinnamon to at least 2 tablespoons. Stir well, then warm in the microwave until the jelly is melted and the sauce is warm.
Thread sausage pieces, alternately with the bacon, snaking it back and forth onto the skewers. Brush the kebabs with the sauce and lay them on the cooling rack on top of the baking sheet.
Roast the kebabs at 350 to 400 until the meats are browned and cooked through, about 35 to 40 minutes. Baste and turn the skewers about halfway through to ensure even cooking… even in a crappy oven like mine. Remove from the oven, roll each skewer in the sauce that has dripped into the bottom of the pan and voila!
