With the new school year upon us, it’s time to make school lunches again. And, it doesn’t take long until the kids are complaining that they don’t want certain things for lunch anymore. That’s not the case for you though! Take the ordinary PB&J and turn it into the extraordinary by turning it into a kabob or skewer if you prefer. Food on sticks is fun, and urning sandwiches into kabobs is one of the easiest ways to get your kiddos to eat their lunches.
Making these PB&J Kabobs is just as easy as making the classic sandwich, and it’s even something that the kids can make themselves the night before. There are a few different ways that you can approach the kabobs, all depending on how much much effort you want to put in. If you have a little bit of extra time, use a small cookie cutter and make the bread into fun shapes before skewering.
To skewer your kabobs, opt for chopsticks over pointy grilling skewers. You can find them at Walmart or Target, or next time you have Chinese food or sushi, snag some extra chopsticks. Also, get the kind that are individual and do not split in half. The ones that you have to break splinter. The main reason I like to use chopsticks better is because they are safer.
The fruit that you add to the kabobs can be changed up based on what’s in your fridge. I used green and red grapes for mine, but strawberries, bananas or blueberries made good skewering fruits too. If you want to use apples on your kabobs be sure to soak them in water with a little lemon juice so that they don’t turn brown.
