Preheat your oven to 400°F if you desire to bake it. Or if you have a cast iron grill pan you can preheat it on your burner or on the grill.
Cut each sausage link into thirds, halloumi into small cubes (about 24 pieces.) Peel and cut watermelon into 24 small squares and set aside.
Make the spicy maple sauce: whisk in maple sauce & sriracha together, set aside.
Thread the skewers starting with the sausage, then the green bell pepper, then the halloumi, then the watermelon. Each skewer should have 2 of these sets. Continue with the rest of the skewers.
Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown on the edges and the sausage is cooked through, about 25 minutes. Serve with spicy maple sauce and fresh off the oven.
Pro tip: If you have an outdoor grill, you can grill the skewers for 5-10 minutes on low to medium heat. You can double or triple the recipe to serve a crowd!
Pork & Beans: Place the breakfast sausage in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally until the fat begins to render out, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce, molasses, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, and pepper. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Add the beans and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld and the sauce thickens, 15 to 20 minutes. Taste and add salt as needed.
