What is it?
Cooking kebabs can be an incredibly healthy, easy, and lead to many versatile meals that work for any part of the day. Traditionally, kebabs are cooked over the grill, but it’s not always the right weather to start that up. Using a simple broiler in your oven, you can make kebabs whenever you’d like in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Given the nature of kebabs, you can include however and whatever you want in any quantities. Some suggestions include…
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Garlic Cloves
- Red Peppers
- Apple Slices
- Line a sheet or pan with foil to catch the drippings.
- If you are using wood skewers, soak them in water to prevent burning.
- Following applicable guidelines per the items you’re cooking (such as, “microwave the potatoes to get them ready” or “peel the wrapping off of garlic cloves”, skewer the items, keeping them as centralized on a skewer as possible. If you want, you can skewer the items through two skewers to ease in flipping all the items.
- Turn on the broiler function.
- Place your kebabs on the foiled pan, and place the pan under the broiler.
- At the appropriate time, flip the kebabs (if you are using metal skewers, protect your hands, as they will heat up).
- Once finished, remove from the oven. Optionally, you can either eat from the skewer or remove the items and eat them as finger food or with a fork.
