Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 can pineapple chunks
  • 4-5 large jalapenos, cut into chunk and deveined and deseeded
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 20-25 skewers

Skewer Glaze

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Instructions
 

  • Line large plate with wax paper. Mix first four ingredients together in bowl.
  • Form bite-size meatballs and place on lined plate. This should make about 20 meatballs. If you have more than one layer, be sure to separate the layers between wax paper. 
  • Place plate in freezer and leave for about 15-20 minutes or until the meatballs are firm. 
  • While the meatballs are in the freezer, chop up and prep all your veggies. Make sure the jalapenos are free from seeds and veins; otherwise they’ll be too hot! 
  • After the veggie prep, combine all three glaze ingredients and mix well until blended. 
  • Take meatballs out of the freezer when done and assemble skewers in the following order: meatball, jalapeno, 1 tomato and 2 pineapple chunks. Repeat until all skewers are completed. 
  • Preheat grill to about 375⁰ and spray with nonstick grill spray. 
  • Coat one side of the skewers with the glaze while still on the plate, and place glaze-side down on grill. Coat the other side with the glaze and let cook, about 10 minutes. Flip over and cook another 10 minutes. 
  • Continue to rotate until skewers are completely cooked through. 
  • Take off grill and enjoy!!

Notes

Pair with a side of brown rice or quinoa to complete the meal!
