I wanted to make kebabs for breakfast, but I wasn’t sure exactly what type of kebab to make. Did I want to make a fruit kebab or a kebab that would be an entire breakfast-in-one? After conferring with my chief food taster, i.e. my husband, I decided to go with the full-breakfast-on-a-stick idea.
If you haven’t yet met Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Little Pork Sausages, let me tell you about them. Think about them as little, wrapped gifts made especially for you by Jones Dairy Farm. These pork sausages are made using the same family recipe as the family used in 1889 – six generations back. They are still completely natural and contain no preservatives or MSG. This is the recipe; this is the sausage that made Jones Dairy Farm famous before any of us (or our grandparents) were born!
Detailed cooking instructions for the kebabs can be found below, but this the “how-to” in a nutshell. Roast potatoes, onions and bell peppers in the oven. Cook the sausage while vegetables are roasting, thread the ingredients on bamboo skewers, burn grill marks onto the kebabs and serve. Easy-peasy! They are delicious and fun – really, what more do we need?
After interrupting my 2½-year old granddaughter’s “compooter typing” to review the photos for this post, she asked what I was doing. Here is the conversation that followed.
Sweet D, “What you doing, Doozie, I want to type some more?”
Me, “I need to look at pictures of my food for just one minute.”
Sweet D, “Your pictoors of food?”
Me, “My kebabs.”
Sweet D, “Your whaaaat?”
Sweet D (louder, higher pitched and with a quizzical smile spread across her face), “Whaaaaaat?”
Me (now with a smile spread across my face since I knew where this was leading) “Kebabs! Kebabs are sticks with pieces of food stuck on them.”
Sweet D, (now laughing) “Whaaaaaat?” (more laughter)
Me (now laughing) “Kebabs. Kebabs are fun to eat.”
Sweet D, (belly laughing) “Whaaaaaaat?”
Me, (belly laughing) “Can you say kebabs?”
Sweet D, “Kebaawbs. (belly laughing while throwing her head back) You say it adin (again).”
Me, “Kebaaaaaaaawbbbs.” (belly laughing while throwing my head back)
Both of us, (belly laughing while throwing our heads back)
That is how I learned “kebabs” is one hilarious word, and that is how Sweet “D” and I roll. We make each other belly laugh – a lot!
This recipe lends itself to versatility, so feel free to add or substitute other vegetables and fruits such as pineapple, ham, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and so many more.

Savory Breakfast Kebabs
- ½ sweet red bell pepper seeded and cut into square-ish pieces
- ½ sweet yellow bell pepper same as red peppers
- ½ green bell pepper same as red peppers
- 1 sweet yellow onion cut into chunks
- 8 new potatoes washed, quartered & patted dry
- 1 12- ounce package Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Little Pork Sausages
- Honey mustard store bought or homemade
- 8 bamboo skewers
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- On three separate baking sheets, place bell peppers, onion and potatoes. Drizzle all vegetables with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Place potatoes in the oven and set the timer for 30 minutes. After 10 minutes, place peppers in the oven (the peppers will cook 20 minutes). After 5 more minutes, place the onions in the oven to bake the last 15 minutes. Following this method, all vegetables should be ready at the same time.
- While the vegetables are roasting, place the sausages in a large skillet and add 6 tablespoons water. Cover and cook on medium for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the lid and continue cooking the sausages to brown them, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and cut into four pieces per sausage link.
- To make the kebabs, slide peppers, onion and sausage on bamboo skewers and serve immediately with favorite honey mustard.
- If grill marks are desired, preheat a grill or griddle then place the kebabs on the grill just long enough to get grill marks.
This dish can be served without making into kebabs, it just isn’t as much fun?
*Delicious served with a side of eggs-your-way.
