TURKEY AND CHEDDAR SANDWICH KABOBS
After several months of distance learning, my kids are excited to return to brick and mortar school and I’ve never been more excited to pack a school lunchbox! My kids love bite sized food for lunch that they can easily eat, so they can quickly get to the playground for recess time (the MOST important part of the school day). They have never been big sandwich eaters, but they will gobble it up if I take the same ingredients and package it in a creative way. I still haven’t broken it to them that they are technically eating sandwiches, but I don’t want to mess with a good thing. If you also have fussy eaters, give these sandwich kabobs a shot!
TURKEY AND CHEDDAR SANDWICH KABOBS INGREDIENTS
Head to your local Kroger store and pick up the following ingredients. I’m a huge fan of curbside pickup right now. I order my groceries, typically the night before through the Fry’s app, and show up during my designated pickup time. I let the store know that I’m in the pickup line through the app and my groceries are placed right inside of my trunk for me. Such a time saver and something my family will continue to utilize long after the pandemic is over.
- Sourdough Bread
- Cheddar Cheese
- Land O’Frost® Premium Meat Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Lettuce Greens
- Pickle Slices
- You’ll also need: skewers & cookie cutters
HOW TO MAKE TURKEY AND CHEDDAR SANDWICH KABOBS
Once you gather the ingredients and supplies listed above, use a small round cookie cutter to cut out sourdough bread circles. Do the same to the cheddar cheese. For different holidays, I like to use coordinating cookie cutter shapes (like hearts for Valentine’s Day or shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day). For these skewers, I used a small heart shaped cutter on the cucumbers. My 7 year old will eat just about anything if it’s cut in a heart shape!
Place a cherry tomato, folded picked and cucumber slice on the skewer. Next, make a mini sandwich out of the bread, cheese and 2 slices of turkey breast (folded in fourths). Skewer the sandwich after the cucumber. Add a piece of lettuce and another tomato to the skewer. That’s it, super easy and so much fun to eat!
You can get creative with the ingredients. Use different cheeses or veggies. Use ham instead of turkey. Use pita bread inside of sourdough.Sometimes I’ll include a salad dressing dip for the kids to dip their kabobs in. If your children are still distance learning, set out the ingredients and they can skewer their own sandwich kabobs. They’ll love it and it’ll be less work for you, win/win! If the kabobs are going inside of a lunchbox, I recommend using a non-pointy skewer (like lollipop type sticks).
