Smoked Sausage Kebabs


Kebabs are not my favorite summer food.  I am not a grill-girl (I leave that job to El Hub!), and since I cook for myself and the kids 4 out of 7 nights, I typically choose menu options that do not include the grill.  However, I have an electric indoor grill (does that even count??!) and I make this meal often, year-round.  The kids love the smoked sausage and I like that it is easy, well-balanced, and flavorful.  Served over rice pilaf.

Smoked Sausage Kebabs

1 package smoked sausage (or 2, it is the best part after all!!)
3-4 red or yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed and quartered ****(cook until just tender for a fork to pass through before cutting them!)
2 small zucchini, sliced somewhat thickly

Glaze:
1/4 cup honey mustard or honey dijon mustard
2 tbl. olive oil
1/4 cup brown sugar

Cook potatoes (in microwave) until fork-tender.  Allow to cool enough to handle.  Quarter them or slice thick.  Slice zucchini and sausage thick.  Mix glaze.  Place alternately on skewers and grill.  Brush kebabs with glaze and serve hot over rice.
