Grilled Bratwurst Kabobs

This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s hard to believe that Father’s Day is just around the corner. I mean, didn’t we just celebrate the new year and here we are smack dab in the middle of 2015.

With Father’s Day literally just days away, we decided to do something a little different for my husband for Father’s Day (although we had to celebrate a couple days early {wink wink}). I know as a mother and wife, I love being served breakfast in bed, especially when I know so much thought and effort went in to making it. When Johnsonville contacted me about their “Bratfest in Bed” campaign, it sparked some ideas and got the creative juices flowing.

My husband works long days. He wakes up in the middle of night basically to head in to work and some days he doesn’t make it home until it’s dark outside again. There is no way I’m making him breakfast in bed. But Bratfest in Bed is something I could totally get behind.

Since summer is here in full swing we’ve been using my husband’s new grill several times a week. As I’ve mentioned several times before, I’m not really a fan of the grill, or haven’t been in the past. The old one we had scared me and I was positive would blow up on me when trying to ignite it. But this new grill, y’all, sooo easy. So I guess my husband was right. It’s all about the grill. I think I could get used to grilling.

These Grilled Bratwurst Kabobs could be a meal on their own, but I cooked up some baked fingerling potatoes to serve along side them and it was a meal fit for a king! At least my king thought so!

The kids had a great time helping me prepare. They each helped with assembling the skewers and were incredibly excited to serve daddy after a long day at work.
