Bacon Wrapped Kabobs
I know the photo doesn't look like much, but I assure you, these little appetizers are marvelous.
The larger ones are actually bacon wrapped baby portabellas, generously slathered with Stubbs spicy barbeque sauce.
The slightly rectangular-in-shape ones are bacon-wrapped pineapple chunks.. also slathered in BBQ sauce.
Of course, what's in the middle is just jumbo grilled shrimp. I marinated it in Italian dressing for a couple of hours before slipping in on the skewers.
The bacon I use is Louis Rich Turkey bacon. Full slices for the shrooms and half slices for the pineapple chunks. I use Turkey bacon because it is healthier without sacrificing flavor and also because it doesn't have the fat that regular bacon has, so you don't get flame ups (fire!) while grilling.
Good stuff, I promise and very quick to throw together. One guest who normally doesn't eat mushrooms, put away 4 or baby bellas!
