Vegetable skewers are absolutely wonderful but who wants to wait until the family cookout to get them off the grill? Well today you are in luck because we are going to make them right in your home using the trusty oven.
2 Onions (peel and cut into wedges)
1 Pound of Cherry Tomatoes
1 Pound of Whole Button Mushrooms (washed)
1 Pound Green Bell Pepper (cored, sliced, cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 Pound Red Bell Pepper (cored, sliced, cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (its your choice)
Fresh Pineapple Wedges (optional)
Pack of Skewers
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Get a fairly big pot or oversized bowl and pour your BBQ sauce in it. Add in all of your ingredients EXCEPT the cherry tomatoes. Make sure all the vegetable are covered and let this marinate for approximately 30-45 minutes. Your skewers need to be soaked in water before adding your vegetables to them. Get a pan big enough to put water in and submerge about 12 skewers in the water. You will let these soak for thirty minutes. When the waiting time is up, grab a skewer, and start building. Make sure you are sticking the skewer right down the middle of the vegetable so that it slides easily down the stick. Be sure to leave some room on both ends. Don’t overbuild on each stick. We like to start with a cherry tomato, onion, peppers, mushroom, pineapple, and another tomato. Once you are done building each skewer place then in an oven safe baking pan or dish. Place them in the oven. It will take about 30 minutes total for them to cook depending on how tender you want the vegetables but turn them every 10 minutes.
