Sandwich Kabobs

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

Kids will love finding these kabobs in their lunch boxes. They are the perfect size for little hands, making a lot less mess to clean up afterwards. Made from all of their favorite sandwich ingredients, moms can rest assured that their kids are eating healthy and not trading with their friends for something else!

Ingredients for 2 Club Kabobs
2 slices of toasted bread
1 slice turkey lunchmeat
1 piece of turkey bacon, cooked until partially crisp
1 slice of Virginia baked ham
1 slice of American cheese
2 sweet pickle chips
2 Popsicle sticks

What You Do

Remove crust from toast and cut into 4 squares. Roll up lunchmeat, trim ends to square off, then cut into 4 pieces. Cut turkey bacon into 4 pieces, along with the cheese slice into 4 pieces.

Start the layering with a square of toast, then bacon, meat, and pickle. Repeat layers, this time replacing the pickle with cheese.

Best if made the day it is to be eaten. Pack into Ziploc baggie in lunchbox. Serve with a side of ranch dressing for dipping. ** Don’t forget to pack an ice pack into the bag to keep everything chilled.

Ingredients for 2 Roast Beef & Cheese Kabobs

1 French or Italian baguette
1 slice deli roast beef
2- 1/4 in. thick chunks of cheddar cheese
2- 1/4 in. thick chunks of Monterey cheese
2 whole black olives
2 Popsicle sticks
fresh lettuce or spinach leaves

What You Do

Slice baguette into 1 in. slices (4 slices needed), and then trim crust and cut each slice into a cube of bread. Roll up roast beef; trim ends to square off, then cut into 4 pieces (you will have 2 pieces left over). Chunk cheese into 1/4 in. thick pieces. Drain olives well on a paper towel before threading on stick.

Start the kabob with a cube of bread. Follow by adding roast beef, one cube of each cheese, the lettuce or spinach and end with another cube of bread. Top each kabob with a black olive.

Best if made the day it is to be eaten. Pack into plastic baggie in lunchbox. Serve with a side of honey mustard for dipping. ** Don’t forget to pack an ice pack into the bag to keep everything chilled.

There are a variety of ways to mix and match ingredients to change the flavors of these kabobs so that the kids don’t tire of them. Try layering bread, sandwich pepperoni, Mozzarella cheese, a fresh mushroom and a cherry tomato for pizza kabobs or bread, meatballs and Provolone cheese with spaghetti sauce for dipping for a meatballs sub kabob. Get the kids in on the fun! Their imaginations will run wild trying to come up with more and more ideas to create their own “unique” kabobs.
