Spicy sausage meatballs spiked with Red Moscato wine, these Moscato Meatball Skewers are served alongside a cool yogurt sauce for a perfect appetizer or main course.
I love food and drink holidays. You know, the days or month that celebrate a specific type of culinary creation? Just like last month was National Grilled Cheese Month, this week there’s National Moscato Day on May 9th. To celebrate, this week’s Sunday Supper recipes all include or are perfectly paired with a Gallo Family Vineyards‘ Moscato. In the case of my recipe, it’s both!
Gallo Family Vineyards actually produces three different varieties of moscato: red, white and pink. When I read that their Red Moscato brings out flavors of sweet citrus and peach, with a bright red berry finish and paired well with spicy cuisine, I knew it was the one I wanted to work with. I love spicy food!
These skewers are a play on an appetizer I was served at Michael Symon’s book signing last fall. This man’s love of Cleveland is abundant and he was so personable in the limited amount of time I was able to chat with him. These Moscato Meatball skewers are perfect as an appetizer when getting together with friends or could even be served as an entree for your family as an easy weeknight meal. With a limited ingredient list and minimal prep time, you’ll sure to love them as much as I do!
- 2 pounds bulk spicy Italian sausage
- ½ cup Gallo Family Vineyards Red Moscato
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- ½ cup diced cucumber
- 1 lemon
- ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
- Parmesan cheese, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, stir together sausage and moscato until combined.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, form meatballs and place on baking sheet, evenly spaced.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until no longer pink.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together all other ingredients to create yogurt sauce.
- Thread meatballs onto skewers and serve alongside yogurt sauce. Garnish with additional cilantro and grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
These skewers are not only spiked with Moscato but are then sprinkled with fresh cilantro and Parmesan cheese and served alongside a cool yogurt and cucumber sauce, these skewers pack a flavorful punch!
