Chicken or Beef Grilled Shish Kabobs Wrapped In Bacon

I should call these Shish Kebacon. What a fun and different way to make an ordinary Chicken or Beef Shish Kabob into something fun and unique.

Shish Kabobs Recipe

Grilling recipes are the classic summer recipes to enjoy with family and friends. Whether at a potluck or your backyard patio table, this marinated shish kabob recipe is the perfect addition to your summer favorites like cold spaghetti pasta salad, or Brats and Sauerkraut in a foil packet.

I’m all about fun and interesting spins on an old favorite recipe. This old favorite comes out of an old church cookbook. It’s one of our family’s favorite grilled dinners. The kids love finding their favorite parts of the kabob and the stuff they don’t want…well, they push it over to my plate. I’m perfectly fine with that because I love everything about these.
