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!
