Bacon & Ham Breakfast Kebabs2010-03-14
These delicious breakfast kebabs are sure to be a hit at your next breakfast bash or brunch. They are simple to make, but look creative and gourmet. Your guests will think that you went to a lot more trouble than you really did. All you need is meat, skewers, and a sous chef nearby to put all the meat on the sticks. The job could not be any easier. Unfortunately for me I was the sous chef this time and placed each piece of meat on the sticks. At least the meat was not coming out of a cold marinade like most of my regular kebabs where my hands are numb at the end of the process.
This following recipe is only a guideline to creating some breakfast meat on a stick. You can change the meat and the sauce, add some fruit on the stick like pineapple, or change the size of the meat and length of the kebab.
We recently served these at my wife Elaine’s breakfast club. Friday was her turn at bat and this ham and bacon delight got rave reviews. Easter and Mothers day are right around the corner and these would make a great addition to your homemade brunch on either of those days.
1 lb of bacon (regular or pick a flavor like Applewood)
~ 2 lbs of ham steak
3/4 cup Hickory flavored BBQ sauce
3/4 cup Bold/Spicy flavored BBQ sauce
3 tbs Dad’s Grill Maple, Apple Beer Sauce (Presidents Choice) or Apple Jelly
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Cut ham steak into 1/2 inch cubes or larger as desired. Cut bacon strip in half. Cut bamboo skewers in half.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
3. Slide one end of the bacon on to the skewer. Add one piece of ham repeating the process folding the bacon over the ham.
4. Line a baking sheet with foil and a grate. Place skewered meat on the grate.
5. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
6. Brush the sauce on the meat skewers.
7. Bake skewers for 45 minutes basting them throughout the process at 15 minute in intervals.
8. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
The inspiration for these came from a similar kebab recipe in a cuisine at home article. They added sausage links and their sauce was different. These could be placed on the barbecue if desired. My only caution would be the constant dripping of fat from the bacon causing flare ups. Also, don’t forget to soak the skewers if you are going to use a grill to cook them.
The Dad’s Grill sauce is a product sold in Canada at Loblaws and other stores.
