Ingredients

  • 1-14 oz package smoked sausage or any pre-cooked sausage of your choice-I prefer turkey 
  • 2 cups pineapple I prefer to use fresh pineapple 
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • ¼ cup teriyaki glaze homemade or store bought

Instructions

  • Cut sausage, pineapple, red pepper, and green pepper into 16 one inch pieces each.
  • Thread 4 metal skewers evenly - one piece red pepper, then sausage, green pepper, pineapple, etc.
  • Line a baking dish with foil.
  • Pre-heat over to lowest broiler setting.
  • Brush skewers with teriyaki glaze. 
  • Broil 6 inches away from heating element for 10-12 minutes, or until vegetables are softened and well browned.

For the grill:

  • Pre heat the grill to medium heat.
  • Place skewers on the hot grill, rotating occasionally until the sausage is heated through, the vegetables are softened and there are some slight grill marks.
  • Brush teriyaki glaze over the skewers and grill a couple minutes longer.
  • Watch closely because teriyaki sauce/glaze can burn easily.

Notes

I used 12 inch metal skewers for this recipe.
