Buckle up, friends. This is about to blow your minds! Charcuterie. Kabobs. It’s all the deliciousness of charcuterie without the mess and lingering around (read, crowding) the table. We guarantee it’ll be the talk of the town at your next potluck or party! But the best part is that it takes next to no effort despite looking like something you might find at a high-end restaurant or catered event.
You can use your favorite charcuterie components but some ideas include lettuce, roasted red pepper, feta and old cheddar cheese, a variety of pickles and other pickled items, smoked meats, sausages, olives, fresh basil, and whatever other cheeses your heart desires! Whatever you choose just make sure you’ve got a balance of flavors.
It’s a simple idea. Grab some skewers and add the meats, cheeses, vegetables, and so on in whatever order you please, making sure to add a variety. We suggest making a bunch of them before serving them up on a platter, stacked up, ready for your guests. You might be surprised at how many you go through – they flew off the plate in our office – so be sure to make enough that everybody can at least have a few.
We served our kabobs with fresh slices of french bread and oil, balsamic vinegar, and Dijon mustard for dipping in true charcuterie style! If you’re on the Keto diet or are gluten-free, omit the bread, but otherwise it’s a nice touch and helps people fill up a bit more (hello, carbs!). It’s as simple as that. So think of these little kabobs next time you’ve got a hosting commitment or are frantically Googling before a potluck. We’ve got you covered!
