  1. mix all ingredients in a food processor, pulse for a few seconds just enough to mix them. If you don't have a food processor, mix them well with your hands in a bowl.
  2. shape like jumbo hotdogs, not footlong just 3 inches long :P
  3. skewer them and grill each side until cooked; you can put 2 kebabs for each skewer then serve warm.

I made these with ground turkey, and it turned out really well. I used fresh garlic, and served it with warm whole wheat pitas and a simple tomato and cucumber salad. Next time I'm going to make some tzatziki to go along with it. Yummy!

This is such a delicious recipe for kebabs! I made it exactly as written, except I added 1/2 of an egg to make sure the mixture would stay together. I broiled them and they came out perfectly! We ate some right off the skewer and made pita sandwiches with the rest. The whole bunch disappeared from the platter in short time and I can't wait to try them again out on the grill! After reading Flying Chef's review, I'm going to make your Chili Salsa as well, and serve it as a sauce on the kebabs and pitas. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
