What do chicken, peanut butter, steak and cheese, and swordfish all have in common? The answer is: absolutely nothing. Oh wait, there is one thing — they can all be put on a stick. That's right, this week's Recipe SWAT Team theme is food on a stick. (Now breathe a collective sigh of relief. We were not going to put them into a blender.)
Yes, the title of this story may be ended on a preposition, but that doesn't change the deliciousness of the recipes created for this week's roundup. Here are some highlights:
- Check out my very own Swordfish Spiedini — they sound super fancy but are actually quick, easy, and delicious.
- Grilling season is slowly making a comeback, and this recipe for Thai Tofu on Lemongrass Skewers by Rachel Rappaport, author of the blog Coconut & Lime and member of our Culinary Content Network, is an excellent option that happens to be vegetarian.
- Dessert on a stick is happening this week, thanks to Nathan Cyphert's Peanut Butter Marshmallow Puppies on a Stick Recipe. Whew, that's a mouthful.
But the winning prize this week had to go to Tyler Sullivan, who created a delicious recipe for Mini Steak and Cheese on a Stick. Congratulations!
All of the recipes featured here can be made at home for about $22 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
