Patriotic Veggie and Sausage Skewers

Veggie Bratwurst Kabobs Smithfield
Rethink your hot dogs and hamburgers this Independence Day and celebrate with veggie skewers on the grill. Featuring Smithfield Traditional Lager Bratwurst.

It’s not the 4th of July without getting our grill on!

Today we are rethinking the classic 4th of July hotdogs with veggie and sausage kabobs made with Smithfield’s Yuengling Bratwursts.

Typically when we think of hotdogs or sausages we enjoy them on a bun with toppings.

I encourage you to get a little more creative and make it your own.

Kabobs are one of those foods that we associate with summer because they involve the grill and colorful summer veggies like zucchini and red peppers. They encourage us to get creative and get those veggies in!

These are made with bratwursts for protein, which are made with Real Yuengling Lagar and Smithfield Premium Pork. Then I’ve just added sliced zucchini, onion and pepper. Toss them in avocado oil, a little lemon juice and seasonings of choice before putting them on skewers and throwing on the grill.

Easy to make, and easy to serve!
