A simple and delicious lunch or snack idea, these Sweet Ham Kabobs will be a hit of the family. Make these for eating at home or for a picnic lunch!
As a busy mom, I truly appreciate quick, after school snacks our younger two can grab on the go. It is equally wonderful when the same snacks can be used as before/after race nourishment for our older two.
Sweet ham kabobs with ham, sweet bread, cheese and fruit are a healthier option to fruit snacks or pizza.
Sweet Ham Kabobs are that perfect snack. They are easy to put together, can be made ahead of time and have ingredients the kids love. They also travel well. Kabobs in general are delicious and the options are endless. Like these Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs.
What can I add to the kabobs?
You can add whatever is your family's taste in deli meat. I used ham and salami. Turkey would be great too or chicken.
I thought the pre-cubed cheese was easy to use, but you could certainly use a block of cheese and cube it yourself.
Cucumbers would be good, as well as peppers. If your children aren't a fan of the veggies, just use fruit. Pineapple and grapes are a good choices for the fruit option.
All you need for this recipe to make it the way I did is Ham, pineapple, grapes, cheese cubes and sweet bread. Simply cut the ingredients up and put them on the kabobs any way you would like.
I like to cut the meat in thirds, then fold it in half. I also like to double up on the ham pieces.
By the way, the kabobs fit great in a container for lunches or to take to a sporting event. Bring along some mustard too! With the variety of proteins, grains, fruit and dairy, the Sweet Ham Kabobs are great for athletes and spectators alike.
