Kabobs are a great way to serve food; they make the ordinary suddenly extraordinary.
These kabobs are a fun way to serve lunch to the kiddos any day and every day; they are super fun for playdates. However, they are even better when you make an entire tray to serve for gatherings and picnics. A beautifully filled sandwich kabob tray brings the wow factor to a simple food that your guest will love.
These skewered sandwiches create a delicious way to add in extra veggies. Eating a sandwich kabob is like grazing. In fact, they are actually quite filling without eating an entire sandwich.
It’s amazing; food on stick tastes better. It’s like magic.
This is a simple, but colorful way to serve a sandwich and kids can help prepare these bites from start to finish! Follow along with this printable to cut, prep and skew…
- 4 skewers
- 1 bagel
- 4 ounces Colby Jack Cheese
- 8 grape tomatoes
- 8 slices of cucumber
- 4 slices of your favorite lunchmeat
- Lettuce leaves
Cut the bagel in half. Then dice both pieces of bagel into large bite size pieces. You will need twelve pieces to make four skewers.
Cut the Colby jack cheese into bite size squares. You will need eight pieces for four skewers.
Cut the lunchmeat pieces in half to create eight pieces. Fold each one twice before skewing.
Add everything to the skewers by creating a pattern; bagel piece, folded piece of lunchmeat, lettuce pieces, cube of cheese, slice of cucumber, a grape tomato and then another piece of bagel. Repeat so that you have two pattern sequences on each skewer.
The meat: Leftover cooked chicken can be diced and used on these kabobs. In fact, grilled chicken adds a whole new flavor to the mix. Leftover cooked turkey, and ham work as well.
Cheese: You can use one of your other favorites cheeses if desired; Muenster, pepper jack, Vermont sharp, cheddar, mozzarella, etc.
More Veggie Ideas: You can add in olives, pickles, pepper pieces, broccoli, etc.
