The Fresh Market has a weekly special for super nice ground chuck at just $3.99 a pound and I like making something a ‘different’ than plain ole burgers or meat loaf.

These are a sort of ‘meatloaf on a stick’ that I can cook in minutes using my grill pan. If you don’t have one, you can use a skillet or broiler. I like the bamboo skewers so no one at the table feels cheated that there isn’t a bun!
