My Frugal Life: Serve Meat Kabob Style

I have found a way to cut costs on meats. If you have a large family, this will also help on costs of meats and vegetables. I went to an Adult Birthday Party and all the meat was served kabob style -"food on a stick" (skewer). Everyone made their own Kabobs - "food on a stick" and the "COOK" did the rest on a Bar B Q grill (also it can be done in the oven) and it only takes minutes to cook!


Cut up 1 inch or 2 inch cubes of chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, hot dogs, link sausages, bell peppers, pineapples, squash, celery, mushrooms, carrots, small corn cobs or other items of your choice, just prior to cooking for family or arrival of guests.

Place cubed foods in separate containers and place them buffet style on the table. Everyone will have a great time assembling their own Kabobs!

It was so enjoyable to watch how people made them so different. Now I do this every weekend and it doesn't cost as much to grill as a whole steak or chicken breast, etc. per person. One can make meatball sized hamburgers or deer-sausage too. This is great for Kids! Get the protein, starches, vegetables, and fruit all at one time!

*The COOK does the cooking for the kids or the elderly

Excellent idea. Make these little beauties ahead and no one is the wiser that there is less meat than veges. Two thumbs up.
