Michael Symon's Lazy Meatball Kebabs with Yogurt
A Easy Way to Make Meatballs
"The Chew" co-host Michael Symon's new book, "Michael Symon's 5 in 5," shows how to cook a fresh meal in five minutes with only five ingredients. This recipe is an easy take on an often-complicated dish.
1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
2. Form the sausage into 16 small meatballs and thread 2 onto each of 8 skewers. Press the meatballs lightly with your hand to form them into patties. Season the meatballs with salt and pepper.
3. Put the skewers on the grill, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Flip the skewers, cover, and cook until the meat is well caramelized, about 2 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, olive oil, cucumber, lemon zest and juice, and mint. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding salt and pepper if needed.
5. Remove the kebabs from the grill and put them on a platter. Serve with the yogurt sauce on the side. Serve immediately.
Yield: 8 skewers; 6-8 servings.
