Skewer It: 5 Outside-the-Box Kebabs

Transform favorite dishes into fun new meals for the whole family by sliding the ingredients onto skewers.

Grilling Made Easy

Use skewers for easy, fun meals the whole family can get in on. Try a variety of sweet and savory recipes from Food Network Kitchen, and have the little ones help with sliding ingredients onto the skewers. Then grill them up quickly outdoors or on a grill pan. 

Chinese-Takeout Skewers   

This is your favorite takeout food, on a stick! We love grilled citrus; the orange is great either squeezed over the skewers or saved as a treat at the end. Make the marinade again for grilled pork chops or chicken thighs.

Antipasto Skewers

These colorful skewers are the perfect outdoor appetizer for a crowd: They can be assembled ahead of time and grilled right before serving. Don't skimp on the lemon — it adds something special.

Stuffed-Mushroom Skewers

Stuffed mushrooms are an all-time favorite appetizer. Slide them onto a skewer and pop them on the grill for your next outdoor gathering. For a zesty spinoff, try substituting fresh chorizo and cilantro for the sausage and parsley.

Grilled Shrimp Caesar Salad Skewers

This has everything you love about both Caesar salad and grilling, nestled together on a stick. Why turn on the oven to make croutons when you can transform a regular old baguette into deliciously crisp nuggets right on your grill?

Strawberry Shortcake Skewers

The caramelized sugar from the strawberries in these skewered desserts is like a sixth ingredient, and the warm fruit almost makes its own sauce. Dip the desserts into whipped cream and enjoy!
