This week’s recipe, a sandwich on a stick, is super easy! It proves that sometimes, it’s not what you serve kids but how you present it to them.

Kids (and people in general) love the novelty of deconstructed food, and this sandwich on a stick is the perfect example. It’s fun to eat, they can see exactly what’s in it, and kids can help make it themselves. The sky’s the limit in terms of what you use in this recipe – feel free to switch up the cheese, meat (or no meat), vegetables, and bread.


Also, I recommend non-pointy skewers, of course!! You can get them at party stores and at some supermarkets.


Here’s the recipe!
