Dinner

Kid Skewers

I love andouille. I am not ashamed of that, nor will I apologize for it. It's what God intended for taste. So attacking the kiddos’ palettes with this savory-sweet stick-o-love is easy and sneaks in yet another veggie I think their tummies will appreciate.

40 Mins

SERVES 3 a 4

INGREDIENTS

● 2 andouille sausage links (I recommend Trader Joe's chicken andouille)


● 1 large sweet potato


● Paddle skewers (short skewers)


● Ground cinnamon


● 3 tablespoons olive oil

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400.


Peel the potato and dice it into 1-inch cubes.


Slice the andouille into 1/2 to 1-inch thick pieces.


Coat the potatoes in olive oil and dust them in cinnamon.


Alternate sweet potato cubes and andouille pieces, leaving a piece of the skewer exposed at the end.


Line a baking pan with parchment paper or foil and spread the skewers evenly.


Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.


Remove and serve once cooled a bit.

KIDS’ SOUS-CHEF DUTIES

  • If they’re strong enough, they can stab all the pieces onto the skewers.
