Turn up the fun with these easy lunch kebabs, which embody the flavors and textures of the classic Cuban sandwich in food-on-a-stick form. Somehow, deconstructing the sandwich into individual kebabs helps a smaller portion of bread feel more than ample. For the most satisfying creaminess, go for block Swiss cheese (instead of presliced) and cut it into pieces yourself. You can build these kebabs a day or two ahead and pack them up with fresh fruit and vegetables for an easy weekday lunch. Don’t worry—the bread won’t get soggy.
