Grilled Kielbasa and Potato Kabobs with Mustard Marinade

Girls Grill Too!!! It was a beautiful day in Philly so I broke out my little Weber Smoky Joe. I've always been fond of kabobs for adding fun to a grill out, the best part is coming up with different flavor combos. These Kielbasa and Potato Kabobs with Mustard Marinade are very tasty and since the meat and potatoes are already cooked, they're grilled just until the peppers and onions begin to char and soften.
Pin It
The whole small potatoes are a pretty touch, about 1" would be perfect (these are bigger). While this might sound a little odd, I think partially cooked Brussels sprouts would be a good addition to the skewer too. Gotta tell ya folks, kielbasa on the grill is amazing!
Had to add a pic that showed some smoke:@)

Kielbasa and Potato Kabobs with Mustard Marinade
Kielbasa, sliced about 1/2" thick-on the diagonal just for looks...
small potatoes (approx 1"), cooked until just barely done, not over done or mushy
sweet onion and green bell pepper, cut up
skewers
  • Alternate food onto skewers (if wooden soak in water for 30 minutes)
 Mustard Marinade-adapted from The Freckled Foodie
3 Tblsp oil-I used olive oil but would try vegetable next time
3 Tblsp vinegar-I used cider
3 Tblsp mustard-I used Dijon but think any kind would be fine
2 Tblsp honey-my addition-I felt this marinade needed something sweet
1 Tblsp soy sauce
1 Tblsp hot sauce, optional-I used Crystals Louisiana Hot Sauce
1 clove garlic, minced-big or small, you know your crowd:@)
  • Whisk everything together and pour over skewered kabobs. Let marinate while the grill heats up.
  • Grill until onions and peppers are cooked to your liking.
Notes:
  • First and foremost... I'm on a mission to find stainless steel skewers! Don't like the way wooden ones splinter while adding food and burn during cooking, they are still good for removing air bubbles during canning though
  • This amount of marinade is good for about 8 kabobs. I laid the kabobs in a 9x13 pan and poured it over them, then turned them while the grill heated up. Since my kielbasa was fully cooked I had no issue with basting the kabobs with the marinade as they cooked.
  • I used two skewers so I could turn the kabobs without the food spinning, this worked very well.
  • Could I have made this in my grill pan? Absolutely! And it would have been a nice quick week night dinner on a gas grill. 
  • I try to think ahead before firing up the grill, what else can I cook for later in the week? Could be something as simple a hotdog for a pork and beans lunch on Monday. 
  • Other kabob combos: Chicken, zukes, peppers, onions and Italian dressing. Teriyaki Beef with peppers and onions. Ham (or chicken), peppers, onions, pineapple and hot sauce. If you have a fun one please leave a comment!

  2. I despise kielbasa, but Mister LOVES it! We actually have a couple packs of it in the freezer. I could do kielbasa on his ke babs, and chicken on mine. The potato is a great idea.

    Thanks, Lynn!

  4. I forgot to mention...I have stainless steel skewers, but Mister just picked up a pack of wooden...guess the advantage is you don't have to clean them after, just toss.
    I have a lil Smokey Joe that I've had since 1984. Great for toasting marshmallows after!

  14. These look absolutely yummy. Grilled with potatoes in the mustard marinade, soooo good. When I have time I go to a little Polish store and buy there kielbasa. There is nothing like there home made kielbasa.

  15. Oh my, I am hungry now and I just finished breakfast. Looks so good. I bet pineapple chances would be good also.
    Thanks for sharing, Ginger

  16. I need to try the sausage on the grill, Lynn. I love the small potatoes and actually grilled some in a grill pan the other day. This would go together quickly since everything is precooked. I hope you find some stainless steal skewers. I have two sets and can't even remember where I got them as they're that old (or maybe it's me that's old!). Happy grilling!

  19. Don't see a "pin it" button. Would have liked to pin it so I could remember to make it sometime next week, after all our rain stops.

  20. I used to be the Grill Queen here. My husband never had the patience. About two years ago he took and interest and I have been fired (no pun intended).

    Being a Wisconsin gal, of course I love sausage! This sound delicious.

  24. This looks amazing! I liked that the potatoes were cooked ahead of time - get to eat sooner : )

  25. YUM!!!!!!!!!! We're heading out to the Polish market today & I'll get some authentic kielbasa so I can try this recipe (without the hot sauce, of course!) LOL
    It sounds like another winner from your house.
    My Dad always liked to grill kielbasa & I don't know why I've never done it. Duh????

    Thanks again for widening my menu choices...I get sick of making the same old things.

  26. I love kielbasa and potato perogies --I am half Ukrainian through my Mom--so I know I'd LOVE these kebabs, Lynn! It's a wonderful idea and something I'll try very soon as we gave my husband a new grill for his birthday!
