Grilled Apple 'n Squash Sausage Kebabs

Grilled Apple and Squash Sausage Kebabs

A sweet and savory dish.

Ingredients for Glaze: 
1/4 cup low-sugar apricot preserves 

1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce 

Ingredients for Kebabs: 

2 cups butternut squash cut into 1-inch cubes

2 cups apples cut into 1-inch chunks 

12 oz. (about 4 links) fully cooked chicken sausage with 8g fat or less per 3-oz. serving, sliced into 1-inch coins

If using six wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning.

To make the glaze, in a small bowl, combine preserves with soy sauce. Stir until uniform.

Place squash and apples in a large microwave-safe bowl with 1 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave for 2 more minutes, or until squash has slightly softened. 

Alternately thread squash, apples, and sausage coins onto six skewers, tightly packing pieces together. 

Spray a grill with nonstick spray and bring to medium-low heat. Brush all sides of the kebabs with the glaze.
Grill for 6 minutes with the grill cover down. 

Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 6 - 8 minutes, or until squash has softened.

Thanks to Hungry Girl for the recipe.
