BBQ Turkey Kabobs

A fun way to get your protein, this recipe created by Go Figure chef David is designed to be simple, yet tasty.  If you’re serving a large crowd, extra time and help will be needed to put the meat on the sticks.

4 Kale leaves, chopped

1 package ground turkey, 93% lean (usually slightly over a lb.)

1 Tbsp. BBQ seasoning

¼ cup cornstarch

½ onion, finely chopped

1 egg

¼ cup tomato paste

18-20 small kabob sticks (can usually be found at grocery stores)

A 2-3 Tbsp. scoop (Ace Hardware carries these)


Mix all ingredients together.  Form small meatballs with scoop, and put one meatball per stick.  After meatball is on stick, gently squeeze and form meatball to retain shape and be secured.  Wetting hands periodically will help prevent meat from sticking to them.  Grill kabobs on pre-heated BBQ 5 minutes/side.
