Cheeseburger ‘n Fries Kebabs

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.)

Grill em.

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!

Cheeseburger ‘n Fries Kebabs

Yield – 4 servings
Prep Time – 15 minutes
Cook Time – 10-15 minutes on the grill

Ingredients

2 lb. bag of frozen potato wedges
1 lb. ground chuck
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
3 dill pickle wedges, cut into chunks
1 onion, cut into chunks
3-4 slices of cheese, cut into 4 small pieces
Condiments – ketchup, mustard, spicy mustard, mayo, or other favorite
Optional – small dinner rolls for serving

Side dish – fresh fruit or baby carrots or small side salad
 

Directions

  • Defrost or thaw the potato wedges completely.
  • In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Toss in a little salt and pepper too. Make 12-16 small burger balls that you can skewer. Pack tightly, as they will loosen slightly as you grill them.
  • Cut the pickles, onions and break the cheese slices into 4 small pieces.
  • Skewer the burger balls, pickles, onions, and potato wedges. Grill for a few minutes on each side, until meatballs have cooked through. Then move to indirect heat or top rack on the grill and place the cheese slice on top. Close the lid and let cheese melt, 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve Cheeseburger ‘n Fries Kebabs immediately with side dish.

    Is there a way to use fresh potatoes instead of thawed frozen? Thanks!

    • Erin says:

      Hey Kim,

      Yes, you could use fresh potatoes, but you’re going to have to microwave them first to get them a little soft…otherwise they would have to cook too long on the grill and you risk burning them or really drying them out. I haven’t tried it…but this is what I’d do.

      I’d cut the potatoes into wedges and soak them in salted water for 30 minutes. Then pat them dry and microwave in a single layer on a plate for a minute at a time, until they were semi-soft and you could string them easily onto a skewer. Then I’d grill them.

      Hope that helps!

      Erin

    We made these last week and after the meat was cooked we brushed them with BBQ sause and let them cook a minute more. Toped them with jack cheese.

  18. Jodie says:

    I’m a little nervous about grilling potatoes, only b/c I’ve never done this before. How do they turn out on the grill? Taste-wise, is it better to grill the thawed-out, frozen version, or to slightly cook the ‘brined’, fresh potatoes?
