Hamburger Skewers for Picky Pickers
Picky is as Picky does
These have a great flavor for adults too, great for football game-day too.
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (85-90%)
1 teaspoon salt
A dash each of black pepper, garlic powder, ground ginger
1 medium onion, minced
3/4 cup grated mild or sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced cooked bacon bits
16 to 20 cherry tomatoes
8 to 12 half-inch slices of pre-cooked potatoes, or large mushroom caps
8 to 12 squares of bell pepper
Wooden or metal kabob skewers
If using wooden skewers, have them pre-soaked. Alternate the vegetables with 3 meat disks on each skewer. The next time I cook these, and I will, I think placing the meat disks horizontally on the skewers will allow for enhanced cooking.
Grill on medium heat. Allow meat to set for 8 to 10 minutes, run a spatula under meat if needed and rotate brushing with a thin steak sauce if desired or my favorite, a mixture of Worcestershire, lemon juice, soy sauce and red wine vinegar. Or broil kabobs in the oven, 4 to 6 inches from heat source for 10 to 15 minutes or until done.
Place skewers on plate, serve with a rice dish and let everyone have fun. For smaller children, arrange food in a comical way.
