Rosemary Skewered Grilled Mushrooms

Who needs skewers when you have rosemary? That aromatic herb can be used for so many things. Which is a good thing considering I have a bush of rosemary as large as my car. I’m ALWAYS looking for uses for that hearty herb and one of my favorites is to use it as a skewer. You don’t ever have to remember to soak it for 30 minutes prior to using (pesky wooden skewers) and it lightly flavors the food you’re skewering. AND there’s no washing a metal  skewer afterwards (you know how much I hate doing dishes)!

To make your very own rosemary skewers all you need to do is remove the rosemary needles from the stem about 3/4 of the way and voila. One of our favorites are these rosemary skewered grilled mushrooms. They make a fantastic appetizer or a great side dish.

    Paula, I laughed about the size of your rosemary bush — didn’t know they got that large! Ours is growing in leaps and bounds — now I’ll have fragrant skewers every time we grill. What an excellent tip! Thanks!
