The presentation of food can make a big difference, as I’m sure most people are aware; but did you know you’re 143 times more likely to enjoy your food if it’s on a kabob or skewer?
Ok, so I totally made that up. But still, I think we can all agree that there’s just something inherently fun about food on a stick. Grilled chicken on a plate is, well, grilled chicken, but when you have a chicken kabob with veggies, it suddenly becomes a perfect party food! And, for example, I saw peanut butter sandwich kabobs on She Knows when I was doing research for this post.
So fun, right? It’s just a peanut butter sandwich cut into bite-sized pieces and interspersed with fruit, but it’s something different and a little more special than the classic approach – I think my boys would really get a kick out of having their sandwich served this way. I’m planning on throwing Elsie a Very Hungry Caterpillar party and I’ve already been thinking about how to incorporate some skewers into the party foods – grapes on a skewer could make a pretty cute – and edible – caterpillar, don’t you think?
This week you’ll find ten delicious skewers and kabobs that’d be great for parties or even just a way to spice up your normal meals at home. Here are a couple from the list below that I especially can’t wait to try:
- Melon mozzarella prosciutto skewers from A Communal Table. I love love love salty and sweet flavors together, especially when there’s a touch of acidity (in this case from a mint vinaigrette) to balance it all out. These look adorable and amazing.
- Bite-sized baked brie from Joy the Baker. It’s another sweet and salty combination FTW here, folks. These would be lovely as little appetizers at a party and would spare your guests the need to walk around with a fork while socializing.
For each photo, click the recipe title below it and you’ll be taken to the original recipe post. You can also find all of these recipes pinned on my Pinterest account for easy repinning. As always, I hope you’ll discover some great recipes to try and some amazing food bloggers to follow. You’ll notice the very last entry isn’t necessarily a recipe but it’s a super fun party display or party favor idea, so I decided to include it honorarily.
