Just in time for your 4th of July grill-a-thon, here are a few of the best kabob and skewer recipes. Some are veggie friendly, like the drunken pineapple skewer (tequila lovers rejoice!), and others have unexpected spice and meat combos.

When the festivities are over, you can repeat these recipes even without an occasion. Take a french toast skewer for example - proof you don't need a holiday (or even a grill) to change up your breakfast routine. Now stick it to 'em.
