If you saw Lily’s post on Saturday and today’s post you’d think we’re a little bit on a Kabob kick, and we are! They’re just so fun and simple and a great way to change things up. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that my kids are more willing to eat things when they’re on a stick. That may sound crazy, but it’s true. We’ve had all sorts of fruits and treats on kabobs over the last few years, but I realized we’ve never made anything a little savory that was kid-friendly. Yes, we’ve made skewers for the hubby and myself with meat and veggies, but the kids weren’t interested in those (even though they’re our favorite!) I thought I’d try a lunch meat and veggie version, and it was a hit!! I left off the bread for these pictures, but think cute squares of sourdough bread would be a great addition to these Lunch Kabobs.
For this version, I decided to add the ingredients I knew my kids would eat including lunch meat, olives, cherry tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. Even though they’re called Lunch Kabobs, we actually made them for dinner a few weeks ago and they were a hit. I, myself, had about 3 of them because they were just so yummy and addicting. As I mentioned before, I think I’ll add a little bread to them next time since my kids are obsessed with bread!! Half of my kids didn’t like the olives either so I may have to make a few without them next time. You can obviously put the ingredients on any way you want but I recommend putting the tomatoes or cheese on the end since they help keep everything on. 😉
Lunch Kabobs Recipe
- 12 slices lunch meat
- 12 black olives
- 12 cherry tomatoes
- 12 cubes cheese
- 6 skewers
- Get all ingredients out in bowls.
- Layer ingredients on skewers as desired making sure to add ones that will help keep everything on for the top and bottom (the cherry tomatoes and cheese cubes worked perfect!)
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
These kabobs are perfect for any party or shower. In fact, I was just telling the hubby that it would be so fun to have a group date at our house for a “FantaSTICK date night”. The theme would be skewers and everyone would have to bring a different type of skewer to share (fruit, veggie, meat, dessert).
Wouldn’t that be so fun?!
