- 4 Italian sausages (about 1 lb/500 g)
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 pinch each salt and pepper
- 1 baguette cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes
- 1/2 red onion cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes
Prick sausages with fork. Place on microwaveable plate; cover and microwave at high until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate until cold; wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Cut into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) pieces.
Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Alternately thread sausage, bread cubes and onion onto metal or soaked wooden skewers; brush bread with oil mixture.
Place skewers on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning three times, until crisped, browned and onion is tender, about 10 minutes.
