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.

They look really awesome!
Thank you ill try that soon. Just made pastry for Cumberland sausage rolls .Just wrap the pastry around once to join up crimp and roll and into hot oven.Nothing else needed save a glass of something as they cook.Big flakey pastry butter sweet and all those juices .More like a cross between a British pork pie and a sausage roll. One is never enough when you taste that juicy bite have the plate under or it runs down your chin. Learned this in China Hong Kong way back in 1970 when a girl I knew had no way of making it I rolled up army sausage in her pastry and flung into the oven as I was half starved watching her cut up veg for the men in her house . By the time her pork and veg with rice came off I had eaten a whole meal. From then on it became Chinese dish with sweet and sour sauce. ill have a cook up with your recipe though.Thanks for your replies dear Diane God loves us all for trying
Oh my does that sound delicious! Sausage is one of my favorite things to eat. I like the the glass of something as they cook too! Thank you for sharing your way I will have to give that a try some day! What an experience in China Hong Kong that must have been. Thank you for sharing your memories!
Looks delicious. Love the idea of using of skewers this way. 🙂
Sounds pretty good. I have a thyme plant. I had a rosemary one, but managed to kill it somehow. I would probably sprinkle paprika on those too. LOVE that spice and its color. Might have to make these soon.
Great idea! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that. I also put paprika on most food. We just bought smoked paprika for the first time. I haven’t tried it yet.
Oh you will love it!
Thyme is one of my favorite herbs. Looks great!
Mine too! Than you Blaine!
What a great idea for potatoes!! Love it
Thanks! Nice to change things up!
Nothing beats the salty crunch of a good oven-roasted potato.
I’m awful and like potatoes at almost every meal….lol
Cute party food! 😀
Thank you Jennifer!
awesome share. They look delicious…
Thank you! They were a nice change from the every day potatoes!
Reblogged this on Vietnam Travel & Trade Portal .
I JUST saw those pink flower plates at the store and almost bought them. They’re so pretty, but I couldn’t justify the need. Glad to see you have them! 🙂
My mother in law bought it for me for my birthday to use for my blog! She gave me a few other dishes too. I love it! Thanks!!!
That was so sweet and thoughtful of her!
Yes I am one lucky daughter in law!
These look so delish !
Thanks they were fun to make!
Could this recipe be adapted for grilling?
That is funny you ask because I was thinking the same thing when I was making them. If I did it I think I would put foil down and brush the butter/oil on and then the rest. I think they would turn out great!
What a great idea, Diane. I’ll bet my grandson would get a kick out of these too. 🙂
Thank you they were very good and easy!
“When you hear the word Kabobs, you don’t usually think Potato!” You are so right. I don’t. But I like the idea because you can turn the potatoes and they can cook more evenly! I love potatoes!
They cook almost entirely in the microwave and that seems to keep them moist inside. You don’t really need to turn them once you put them in the oven to cook. I just know they turned out delicious!
🙂 I like the crispiness of the oven roasting, but it usually gets crispy on one side and not all of them. Potato kabobs – its funny!
I like to be different…hahaha
