Oven Potato Kabobs
When you hear the word Kabobs, you don’t usually think Potato! These Oven Potato Kabobs not only look elegant but taste amazing too! I snipped the ends off some of my home grown thyme to add even more flavor to these delicious Oven Potato Kabobs. What makes these so good is what you do to them before they go into the oven.
Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
Wash the potatoes and cut them into 1” pieces.
Put cut potatoes into a medium bowl and add 2 Tbsp of water to the bowl.
Microwave for 4 minutes on high and then stir.
Microwave 3 minutes more.
Let cool until you can pick up the pieces with your hand.
(If you prefer, you can parboil the potato pieces instead
in a saucepan of boiling water for 5-10 minutes until almost tender.)
Thread the potato pieces onto the water-soaked
wood skewers and place on a baking sheet.
Mix the melted butter and olive oil together then brush on the top of the kabobs.
Turn them over and brush on the other side too.
Sprinkle both sides with the salt and pepper then put the fresh thyme on top.
Bake in a preheated 475 degree oven for 20-25 minutes then serve.
