Skewer ‘Em!: 6 Amazing Food-On-A-Stick Dishes

Skewered food or foods-on-a-stick are amazing for a bunch of reasons. They are the perfect food for any type of party or gathering. They are delicious and always a hit with the guests; young and old alike. They are also easy to handle, mess-free, easy to clean up, and pretty darn convenient. Here are 5 amazing skewered food recipes that you can try out:


Kebabs are one of the best types of food you can put in your mouth in your lifetime! This Middle-Eastern dish is based on grilled meat, and the awesome part is you can pick your choice of meat! The meat is usually cubed and marinated using a variety of spices and yogurt. You can then skewer and grill it on the barbeque or just cook it on your oven or stovetop, if that’s all you have.


Smores are an old classic and a campfire favorite, and for good reason! If you’re having an outdoors party, they make a great DIY food for guests to make for themselves. Even if you don’t plan on building a fire, you can make them in advance in the oven, and everyone will love it!

Grilled Fruit Kabobs

If you haven’t tried grilled fruit yet, then you’re seriously missing out! Cube a variety of fruit and skewer them up (or you can just use one type of fruit, it’s up to you), and grill them up. If you don’t feel like grilling, no problem, they will be delicious as plain fruit kabobs too!

Corn Dogs

This classic American carnival food also fits right at home on this list of amazing skewered food. Its basically just a sausage that is put on a stick, dipped in a cornmeal batter, and deep fried; how can that not taste good? And lucky for you, it’s easy to make as well!

Chicken Satay

This classic Asian dish is pretty popular all around the world. And the good news is, it’s not that complicated to make either. You should be able to get the ingredients at a specialty store, and substitute whatever you can’t find. Trust us, the juicy skewered chicken accompanied by the perfect dipping sauce is worth all the effort.


Technically speaking, popsicles are also a type of food that’s on a stick! They are delicious, easy to make, and customizable according to your liking. You can even adapt them according to the theme of your party. And if you’re having a party outside during the summer, everybody will love you for making them!
