Here’s a fun new way to eat cheeseburgers — on a stick! These totally stacked, shareable kebabs combine all the elements of a classic burger, including the lettuce, tomato and pickles.

Grilled Fruit and Vegetable Kebabs

Cook your entire meal on the grill — including the sides. Nancy Fuller’s vegetarian skewers include peppers, onions and pineapple, and get spiced up with a zesty honey-lime vinaigrette.

Pizza meets kebabs on the grill. Kids love to pull the chunks of sausage, bread and tomatoes off the skewers with their hands, dip them in tomato sauce and eat — just like a New York slice, no forks allowed.

These fiery kebabs are super-simple to pull off. Thread chicken tenders, celery (yes, it tastes great grilled!) and tomatoes onto a skewer and baste with Buffalo sauce. Don’t forget the blue cheese dressing.
