There’s just something super yummy about pairing together some good ole sausage and bell peppers. While I’ve had this combo together many times on pizza, in pasta, and even in frittatas, I’ve never thought to throw them on the grill together – until now! And let me tell you what, especially with the addition of the fresh oregano sauce on top, these Grilled Sausage and Bell Pepper Kabobs were even better than I expected.

I’ll definitely be doubling this recipe next time I make it so I can add the leftovers to some eggs for my breakfast in the morning. I might even throw in a few mushrooms as well. Mmmm, mmmm good! :)
Sausage Kabobs: The Basics
If you haven’t made kabobs before, they’re assembled by alternating meat and vegetables on a skewer. For this recipe, I used Italian sausage and paired it with bell peppers and red onion for a mix of sweet and savory flavors.
What makes these sausage kabobs so good is the dressing: it combines olive oil, oregano, garlic, and red wine vinegar for a delicious alternative to BBQ sauce.
Other Sausage Kabob Ingredient Ideas
Besides bell peppers and red onions, you can try out some of these great ideas that pair well with sausages on bbq kabobs:
- Add additional protein to your kabobs that pair with with sausage like shrimp or chicken
- Pineapple (tastes great grilled!)
- Cherry tomatoes
- Sliced eggplant or zucchini
- Sweet corn on the cob (cut into chunks and pre-soaked)
- Potatoes (small ones like new or baby potatoes, partially pre-cooked)
Honestly, almost anything that tastes good grilled and can be skewered is a good option for kabobs. Just be cautious of different cooking times and cross contamination between meat and veggies.
Fun Family Dinner Idea
One thing I love about sausage kabobs is that it’s a fun recipe to get the kids involved in cooking. Pre-slice the ingredients, then have kids skewer the kabobs.
If you opt for a variety of veggie options you can even let kids choose their own; this is one of my favorite tricks to get kids excited about eating a healthy dinner.
