Even though I don't have any kids that are readying themselves for the new school year, I thought I would post a back to school recipe anyway to inspire those mum's that are dreading this year's lunch making marathon.
These cute little stoplight (red/green/yellow - get it?) skewers were inspired from what I had left in the fridge today. So there is no real recipe to making these however I will post what I used anyway.
I would describe these little "sandwich's" on a stick as vibrant and hopefully exciting for the young schoolar who will eat them. They are basically a skewered sandwich, with two pieces of bread at either end with salad items and a piece of chicken breast in the middle. You could use any type of leftover meat such as sausages, turkey, ham or beef. Whatever the kid likes really. I served mine alongside a dollop of hummus but even sweet chilli, bbq or tomato sauce would work as well. I know kids ADORE sauce so this might be a little incentive for them to gobble the whole thing up.
Isn't eating food on a stick WAY more exciting than sitting down to a boring salad sandwich. I know which one I'd prefer - the sandwich - nah just joking of course the skewer! These may seem time consuming but a little prep of the vegies before hand and a little help from the little people in your life will get these whipped up in no time at all.
