Sausage Shish-Kabobs

Author: Kelly the Kitchen Kop


  • Brats Maybe one brat per person? Depends on the size of your brats
  • A variety of peppers green, red, yellow cut into skewer size pieces
  • Onions cut into skewer size pieces If your family will eat them
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup organic or homemade to avoid high fructose corn syrup
  • 1/8 cup local raw honey
  • 1/8 cup real maple syrup


  • Boil brats in a frying pan with a little water in the bottom until they’re cooked through. In the meantime mix together the mustard barbecue sauce.  In a saucepan add the following and stir ‘til heated well: mustard, ketchuplocal raw honey, and real maple syrup.  These aren’t exact amounts, I just squirted and poured.  Taste and see what it needs to get it how you like it.
  • Grill brats just long enough to get them hot and full of that yummy grilled flavor.  Slice brats and put them on skewers with peppers (preferably local and organic). Brush with sauce and grill a few more minutes until the peppers (and onions if using them) are hot.
  • NOTE:  For a meal lower in carbs or for picky kids, you could leave some plain and they’re really good this way, too.
