I know back to school season is a very busy and stressful time for parents. I get it, y’all. I’m right there with you. Supply lists, school clothes, backpacks, lunchboxes – it’s all so expensive and stressful. But if it’s any consolation at all, school lunches don’t have to cause you any additional stress! You can create fun, exciting lunches for your children quickly and easily! These super easy to make Ham BLT Kabobs are a great addition to the lunchbox.
You know what they say – you eat with your eyes first. These Ham BLT Kabobs are bright, colorful, and pretty to look at. If the saying is true with your children, they’ll be excited about seeing these Ham BLT Kabobs in their lunchbox.
I like to create lunches for my children that are anything but ordinary. I want them to be excited about the lunch I’ve created for them. I want them to enjoy it and appreciate it. That’s why I love the deli counter at Walmart! It allows me to create easy and delicious meals for my children.
I can’t find these particular food picks anymore on Amazon, but I did find some other cute ones you can choose from. I’m telling you, kids love anything on a stick.
Ham BLT Kabobs
- 2 slices Texas Toast
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 slices Eckrich Cooked Ham (cut on a 3 from the deli counter)
- 3 slices thick cut bacon, cut in 1-2" pieces
- lettuce cut in 1-2" pieces
- 9 grape tomatoes cut in half
Other Items Needed
- plastic kabobs
While I used Eckrich Cooked Ham, you could also use Eckrich Virginia Brand Ham or Eckrich Honey Cured Ham. Or you could totally switch it up and use a different deli meat like Eckrich Garlic Bologna. The possibilities are endless with this one, y’all.
I use Eckrich because each of their best selling hams are specially trimmed for consistent quality and feature a wide selection of flavors. It makes it super easy to stock up on flavors the whole family loves for easy meals throughout the week. Plus, it’s totally affordable. Back to school time is already expensive, so getting some help with the cost of school lunches is a huge help for us.
I have three children and I serve each one three kabobs, the reason the recipes makes 9 kabobs. For a nutrient-filled lunch, serve with fresh cut vegetables & hummus for dipping, and greek yogurt topped with fresh berries. This is a combination my children go crazy for. It’s the perfect, middle of the day, energy boost they need to finish the school day.
For a less stressful school year, plan lunches in advance so that you know exactly what to buy and what to make. I’m telling you from experience, it makes school lunches so much easier. Here are some other lunchbox ideas:
