Did you notice the various spellings in the recipe titles for kebab? I did! I decided to look it up to see which spelling is the correct one. Since kebabs started out as an Indian dish the correct spelling is kebab. However, in America they can be spelled as kabob. And, both are viewed as the correct spelling.
Isn’t that interesting! I love how language evolves… most of the time.
What do you think? Will you pull out your grill and give these a try? Or, will you prep them and place them on a sheet pan and pop into the oven? Either way these kebabs are a great, pleasing, family dinner idea.
