Dawn I think I like the kabob's better. When I pulled them off I was surprised that the bacon help really nicely to the meatball. This will allow me to sauce them afterwards if I wanted and not have to worry about the Kabobs. Then if I put them out people can choose to either use a tooth pick or just put on their plate with the rest of their food.
I also like the kabob because if your having 5 people over you can make just 5 and not have to worry about folks not getting some when you have 1 kabob per person.
That being said I wont say I wont use toothpicks again because I may run out of skewers next time
