Fontina-Stuffed Meatball Kabobs
Ingredients
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3  cup  grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2  pounds  lean ground beef
  • 2  ounces  thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped
  • 16  1/2-inch cubes Fontina cheese (1-1/2 ounces)
  • 8  canned  artichoke hearts, drained and halved lengthwise
  • 1 8  ounce package  fresh cremini mushrooms
  • 2  cups  grape tomatoes
  • 1  recipe  Balsamic Glaze
  •  Fresh basil (optional)
Directions

1. In a large bowl combine egg, Parmesan cheese, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add ground beef and prosciutto; mix well. Divide mixture into 16 portions. Form each portion around a Fontina cheese cube to make a meatball. On sixteen 8- to 10-inch skewers,* thread meatballs, artichokes, mushrooms, and tomatoes, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces. Prepare Balsamic Glaze; set aside.

2. For charcoal grill or gas grill, grill kabobs on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until meat is done (160 degrees F), turning once and brushing with half of the Balsamic Glaze halfway through grilling.

3. To serve, drizzle kabobs with the remaining glaze and, if desired, garnish with basil.

  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes prior to threading with ingredients.
