Burgers just got a little more exciting. And tastier…the smoky flavor infused into the pickles and onions is fabulous. Perfect, perfect, perfect!
Serve these as is, or serve each little burger ball on a small dinner roll. We enjoyed these like this with some baby carrots and pineapple.
Prep the burger balls, defrost/thaw the potato wedges, cut the onions and pickles, and “quarter” the cheese slices.
String it all up. Kebab them up. (Can kebab be used as a verb? Hmm.)
Roll em, and grill all sides.
Once the meat has cooked through, move the kebabs off of the direct heat and let the cheese slices melt on the burger balls.
Boom, eat them up!!!
For the rest of the potato wedges, place as many as you can fit onto skewers and grill them for a few minutes on each side, until cooked/warmed through. Serve a skewer or two of grilled fries with your burger kebabs!
A delightful summer meal!
