Sandwich on a Stick-a fun way to eat sandwiches and perfect for school lunches! Kids and adults will love these creative Havarti and Gouda-filled sandwiches!

Sandwich on a Stick

When I was in school, I almost always brought my lunch from home. The school cafeteria food was kind of scary. The mystery meatloaf was definitely a mystery and I never understood what a turkey horseshoe was. Plus, I liked picking out a special lunchbox every year. Well, there was that one year when my dad bought me a Ghostbusters lunch box and I cried for days because I thought the world was ending. How was I supposed to show up to school with a Ghostbusters lunchbox? I wanted a Lisa Frank lunchbox. Parents…sigh:)

Anyways, I loved bringing my lunch because I knew I would always have something good to eat. My dad didn’t have good taste in lunchboxes, but I could always count on him for a delicious lunch:)

If you are looking for lunchbox ideas, today is your lucky day! I am sharing a few fun sandwich ideas for back to school! I took a few of our favorite sandwiches and put them on a stick! Yep, Sandwich on a Stick, it’s a fun way to get your kids to eat their lunch!

Instead of making traditional sandwiches, I took all of the ingredients and put them on a stick! The sandwiches are easy to assemble and the kids can even help! You can make them the night before because the sandwiches won’t get soggy!

I made sure all of the sandwiches included Arla Dofino cheese because cheese makes everybody happy:) I used three of our favorites: Gouda, Creamy Havarti, and Havarti with Dillall of which are made from milk with no added hormones and without artificial flavors or preservatives. I cut some of the cheese into shapes with little cookie cutters because Caleb tends to eat better when things are in fun shapes. Plus, they are super cute and everyone wants a super cute lunch at school.

Here are the details for the sandwiches. They are all super simple to make!

Club Sandwich on a Stick: Skewer white bread cubes, deli turkey, bacon, Arla Dofino Havarti cheese cubes, grape tomatoes, and lettuce onto a stick. Serve mustard or mayonnaise on the side for dipping.

PB and J on a Stick: Make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and cut it into shapes with a small cookie cutter. Skewer raspberries, grapes, and Arla Dofino Havarti cheese stars in between the mini sandwiches. Note-you may want to use sunflower or almond butter due to allergies. Most schools have “no peanut” rules.

Turkey and Salami on a Stick: This is Caleb’s favorite! I use whole wheat bread cubes, deli turkey, salami, Arla Dofino Gouda cheese shapes, and grape tomatoes. Serve mustard or mayonnaise on the side for dipping.

Veggie Sandwich on a Stick: I use whole wheat pita bread triangles, cucumber slices, grape tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, and Arla Dofino Dill Havarti. I like to serve hummus on the side for dipping.

  1. These sandwiches on a stick just made me happy today as a pack my husbands lunch and now my 5 year old daughters lunch as she heads off to Kindergarden next week! School lunches are scary, for sure. However, my husband insists that when he flirts with the lunch ladies he gets double portions. Then I think, yes, but do you even want double portions?

  2. So cute and pretty! However, the mom in me looks at those pointy skewers and goes ‘Uh, that’s not gonna make the lunch monitors happy!” …..depending on the ages of the kids, of course, I can see those easily becoming swords:)

  3. I’m with Caleb—those salami skewers look irresistible!! Turkey horseshoe???? I would have steered clear of cafeteria food with options like that, too!!!

  4. What a great idea! Your kids will be the envy of the lunch crowd. I don’t have kids yet, but do you think my husband will enjoy this just as much if I pack it with him for work? 😀

  5. Aw, I’m feel for your Ghostbusters lunchbox woes — though looking back, Ghostbusters were pretty awesome. My kids are going to LOVE these – what a great way to change things up for school lunches!

  6. My only concern is that these are pointy sticks and could hurt someone. Kids get silly. I think an alternative might be better so that there are no accidents.

  7. Perfect timing I am just working out our school lunches for next week and one of my children is particularly fussy but I think he would happily eat these. I guess I had better get some skewers. Thanks for the idea x

  8. this is the best homemade lunch ever!! gosh, I wish I was a kid again and someone would make me a lunch this fun/cool/beautiful. I do kind of miss picking out a new lunchbox every year too 😉

  9. I love this idea, however the stick thing concerns me. My boys are 5 and 8 and definitely can’t be trusted!! My husband and I came up with a possible alternative…sandwich on a string? Get a heavy duty huge needle (with a big eye) and thread some string or non flavored dental floss on it and thread your sandwich bits on it. Not as pretty, but could work?
