I’m a big fan of quick and easy meals that my children like and are fun to eat. While doing my grocery shopping at H-E-B last week, I took advantage of one of their many in-store coupon deals which was buy 2 Hillshire Farm Deli Select Lunchmeats and get free Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and Sara Lee Classic White Bread. Since I already had green and black olives in the basket, I decided to do a kabob that I knew the children would love.
- Lunchmeat of your choice (we used turkey and salami)
- Olives (green, black or both)
- Cheese cut in cubes
1. Arrange your lunchmeat, olives and cheese as you like on the skewer. Since I was making these for the children, I made two kabobs from one skewer.
2. Cut off the sharp end of the skewer so that it can not be used as a weapon after dinner time.
As if you couldn’t tell by now, I love to make quick, easy and fun meals. I don’t like spending hours in the kitchen but I still want to give my family something they like. Since we took advantage of the in-store coupon and got the mayonnaise and bread free with our purchase of lunchmeats, I got the Panini Press down and made my hubby a quick sandwich using our free bread. He was thrilled with his hot sandwich and I was thrilled I didn’t have to clean up a messy kitchen.
The kiddos had an absolute blast eating their Kiddie Kabobs. You could serve them with apple slices and peanut butter and you have a meal that took all of 5 minutes to prepare.

That is a really cool idea and I will remember the recipe. It sounds like a fun think to take along in a picnic lunch to the zoo!
YUM! these look great and would be great as appetizers for get togethers as well!
Those look like a great way to get kids to try new foods!

I’m definitely trying this idea – but I think I will add some fruit too, to sweeten up an otherwise very salty snack!
This is a great recipe! They look yummy! Nothing better than a simple and easy meal. 🙂

Cherry or grape tomatoes would be a good addition.
I do something similar for parties but I use rosemary springs for the “skewers” and then cheeses, meats, and veggies on the skewers – the rosemary will lightly flavor whatever’s on the skewer and it’s very tasty!

WOW, what a great idea! I have never thought to do that. I have sometimes done some lunchmeat roll ups but your idea is way better! Thank-you for the great idea!
I’ll certainly have to toss in some lesser-liked items if I can come up with something because I know my kids would gobble up something served in a novel manner such as this. 🙂
My child might actually try something new if I did this. Thanks for the idea!
These look yummy! I don’t know if I’d want to share! — LOL

This looks so fun and easy to make. Oh and so yummy too.
this a wonderful ideas – I am sure the kiddos will love it
These kabobs look tempting. I think they would go well with au gratin or scalloped potatoes. Now I’m making myself hungry!
