Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabobs

It’s National Something on a Stick Day!! *Happy Dance*. I mean it’s just fun to eat something off of a stick… and I feel like there’s a lot of “stick food” here in Texas. But by far, my most favorite ever recipe involving skewers, is Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabobs.
What I love about this recipe is well, everything. But the coolest part is you actually use ground beef. Think meatballs, meet stick, meet grill. It’s easy and delicious while still kid and budget friendly. #winwinwinwin
I’ve even made this Texas Beef Council recipe on the air twice because it’s such a hit! Plus, all the leftover beef meatballs can be used in countless ways throughout the week. The Recipe is below, but check out these other ways you can use these leftover beef meatballs- both on and off the stick.
KISS Tip #1: Leftover meatballs can top a bed whole grains with some fresh parsley and tomato or they’re the perfect addition to a refreshing field green salad with feta cheese and a side of fruit (on a stick, of course).
KISS Tip #2: Serve meatball kabobs with sides of hummus, BBQ sauce or Tzatziki sauce, or make sliders that the kids will go crazy over.
KISS Tip #3: For a refreshing and gluten-free option, use leftover meatballs in this KISS Asian Lettuce Wrap recipe!
