Shrimp and Andouille Sausage Kabobs with Apricot Grand Marnier Glaze and Baked Potato

I love love love cooking with Johnsonville Andouille Sausage!  You too will absolutely love cooking with Johnsonville sausage!  Why? Well  because they give a powerful punch of flavor without the fillers and did I mention no MSG ~ BAM!  Johnsonville always pleases with only premium cuts of pork, fully cooked sausage for convenience ~ all cooked with lots of  Johnsonville love.  They are even getting creative with their flavors like their Three-Cheese Italian Style!

I put them on wooden skewers, added some pineapples and glazed them with an Apricot Grand Marnier Glaze, grilled them and OMG ~ Best Kabobs Ever ~ I indulged in a piece of heaven!  It was so delish that I made them for a cookout the following week.  They were a huge success and took little to no time on the grill!  I paired it with a baked potato for dinner with my family but served them with a salad at the cookout!
