Oh….I am in love with these and I can’t tell you how much! VERY addicting! I kept seeing different variations of this on the internet and since I was going through a kabob phase (loved those Gummy Kabobs!), this sounded like something fun to make. I especially like taking food to events that you don’t have to serve super cold or keep hot so these fit the bill!

We have already severed them for dinner and some manly events like a men’s baseball BBQ and poker night. They were a hit at each place- came home with empty platters! They can be a little time consuming to make so make with a buddy to save time (though not with younger kids as the tip of the skewer is sharp).

 

 

Ingredients

  • Bamboo skewers any size
  • Package string cheese sticks (mozzerella balls would be even more “gourmet” but string cheese tasted just as good and was less expensive)
  • Package pepperoni or other thin cuts of meat (though cubes of ham would work also)
  • Can of olives (not for a caprese but I was compromising with Hubby who hates tomatoes)
  • Container yellow or red cherry/grape sized tomatoes (cut in half if too big)
  • Pepperchinis or other peppers cut to size
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive oil or sauce for drizzling. We used Pampered Chef‘s Parmesan Garlic Oil Dipping Seasoning in the bottom photo which you can order from my friend Joan Posey at www.pamperedchef.biz/JoanPosey. There are other flavors to choose from, too. SO good!
  • Optional: Tortellinis or whatever sounds good to you!

How-to

If your tomatoes are large, cut in half and slice the string cheese into about 1″ pieces. Wash and dry your basil and make the dipping sauce. Starting with clean bamoo skewers, figure out the pattern of how you want the food to look and then begin skewering (we found out that the food went on a little easier if you slid a piece of the pepperoni up and down the stick to naturally grease it). For the basil and the pepperoni, we folded them in half as we put them on.

Depending on the size of your skewers and the number of people for your event will determine how much supplies you need but the ingredients are mainly staples from your kitchen already so you should be good.

After assembled, salt and pepper. If you are making these ahead of time, put the dipping sauce on right before serving. We made them with just olive oil the first time but it tasted even better with the dipping sauce. Enjoy!
