Print Bunless Turkey Burger Kebabs Print

1/6th of recipe (1 burger skewer): 138 calories, 6g total fat (2g sat fat), 543mg sodium, 10.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 11.5g protein

Blue Plan (Freestyle) SmartPoints® value 3*

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes


2 tbsp. ketchup

1 tbsp. yellow mustard

18 frozen precooked turkey meatballs, mostly thawed

1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch chunks

18 hamburger dill pickle chips

12 cherry tomatoes


In a large bowl, mix ketchup with mustard. Add meatballs, and toss to coat.

Alternately thread meatballs with remaining ingredients onto 6 skewers.

Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Grill skewers for 5 minutes with the grill cover down.

Flip skewers. With the grill cover down, grill for 5 more minutes, or until meatballs are heated through and onion has softened.


HG Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning.

HG Alternative: No grill? No problem. Use a nonstick grill pan on the stove (like this fantastic find over on Amazon) and adjust cook times accordingly.

What's that? Today, August 30th, is National Toasted Marshmallow Day? Sounds like a great time for Toasty Marshmallow Sweet Potato Skins! (Who says we have to wait for fall?)
