They’re a delicious appetizer perfect for entertaining!
These antipasto board kabobs of meat mixed together with delicious cheese cubes will make any guest want more than just one bite – if not all night long!
And the best part is that everyone gets their own charcuterie skewer and you don’t have to share.
You can include ingredients such as fresh basil leaves (plus other greens like peppers), artichoke hearts & olive oil on top when you dip them into their bowl after helping yourself at the table.
They also go well alongside some simple sides like bottled marinara sauce or stuffed olives.

Charcuterie Skewers Ingredients

- Babybel cheese pieces or your favorite cheese
- Mini dill pickles
- Wooden skewers

Simple Steps to Making Charcuterie Kabobs
You don’t have to do it in the following order, put them together as you would like.
The easiest way is to fold each slice of meat in half, then in half again.
Slide one slice of pepperoni and one slice of salami on the stick.
Next slide a piece of cheese on top of the meat.
Continue layering meat and cheese along the middle of the kabob stick.
Top the stick with a piece of Babybel cheese and a mini pickle.
What Else Can I add to My Charcuterie Skewers
You can change them up by adding any of the following great options:
- red peppers
- green olives
- black olives
- cheese tortellini
- another type of cheese
- fresh mozzarella balls
- cherry tomatoes
- different cheeses
- bell peppers
- Roast Beef
Not sure if everyone likes the ingredients you are using? How about creating a meat and cheese appetizer skewers board so that everyone can make their own.
Start by creating a cheese board with all your favorite cheeses. Add your favorite meat skewer appetizers as well as some Italian dressing in a small bowl so they can dip their items in the bowls, sprinkle with some Italian seasoning. They can place everything on a little skewer and they’re good to party on.
