Ingredients

  • ½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I used Sprouts brand)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh Oregano
  • 1 12.8-ounce package Sprouts Old Tyme Butcher Shop Mild Italian Sausage with Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese (4 fully cooked sausages); sliced into 1-inch pieces (5 pieces per sausage)
  • 1 ripe Pineapple
  • 1 large Red Onion
  • Disposable Condiment/Snack cups
  • 1 bottle Barbecue Sauce
  • Bamboo Skewers
  • Foil

Instructions

  1. Combine the olive oil and oregano in a sealable jar. Allow to sit for an hour before grilling or longer.
  2. Fill the disposable condiment containers with barbecue sauce for dipping.
  3. Slice off the top/leaves and very bottom off the pineapple. Slice the pineapple into 6 equal wedges (vertically); remove the outer peel, the inner core and cut the wedges into ½ inch slices.
  4. Slice off each end of the onion (root and stem). Peel, cut in half vertically; cut each half into thirds (vertically) making 6 wedges. Cut each wedge in half horizontally.
  5. To thread the skewers: slide on 1 piece of sausage, 2 pieces of onion separated from one of the small wedges, pineapple piece. Repeat and end with a piece of sausage.
  6. Heat the grill to medium heat (350 degrees). Brush and oil the grill. Lightly brush the skewers with the oregano-infused olive oil. Place some of the skewers on the grill with a piece of foil underneath the exposed skewers on the grill. Ensure none of the bamboo is exposed to the grill.
  7. Using tongs rotate the skewers to ensure all sides are grilled. Remove when the onions are cooked; approximately 5 minutes. Serve with individual barbecue sauce containers.
