School Lunch Ideas #14: Sandwich Kabobs

Sandwich Kabobs are a fun twist on a regular sandwich.  And, for my Kid, it’s about the only way he’ll eat lettuce!

In this case, I did a couple of different sandwich fillings:  pepperoni and deli meat chicken.  He doesn’t like the deli meat chicken in a sandwich, but for some reason on a stick it’s okay.

To make them:  First take a slice of bread and cut off the crusts.  Then cut the remaining bread into 12 squares.  Take a string cheese stick or two and slice them so you have 2 or 3 rounds per kabob.  Cut Sandwich Stacker pickle slices into 1″ chunks or use small 1″ round pickle slices, enough for one per kabob.  Tear lettuce leaves into small 2″ diameter chunks.  Get 5 or 6 bamboo appetizer picks (or lollipop sticks or other small skewers).

Slide them on in any order you like, but I did: bread, lettuce, meat, cheese, meat, cheese, pickle, bread.  I also vary this a bit based on the fillings.  For example with the deli meat (which he doesn’t like so much) I add extra pickles.  With the pepperoni, I sometimes add extra cheese.  They are not all the same as you can see, and that keeps him more interested in going in for another one.
