Aren’t these just the cutest sandwich skewers!

These Garlic Butter Sandwich Skewers are here just in time for back to school and just begging to be devoured. Are you excited?

This recipe is especially fun because it’s a recreation of a favorite from the 1960s. Called “Hamcheezers” back in the day, I can’t take credit for the idea of putting sandwiches on a stick. The original recipe called for shredded spiral ham and cheese, but I thought it would be great (and easier/more accessible) to make them with assorted lunch meat and sliced cheese.

It also called for a mustard sauce on the buns instead of garlic butter. Since I like to slather garlic butter on pretty much anything and everything, I had to give it a try on these as well. They turned out SO GREAT, I can’t wait to make them again.

These Cheesy Garlic Butter Sandwich Skewers wouldn’t be possible without Reynolds Wrap. They were behind the original Hamcheezers of the 1960s and also behind this new version. Reynolds Wrap Non Stick Foil is absolutely perfect for either grilling or baking these bad boys.

From grilling to freezing to everything in between (foil packets, covering dishes, storing leftovers, lining baking pans, the list goes on and on!) They’ve been creating kitchen miracles since 1947…I’m so honored to work with them!

You could make these Garlic Butter Sandwich Skewers so many ways. Next time I’m going to make a french dip version with roast beef and provolone! I’m hooked.

I also love serving these along with a bowl of homemade tomato soup. So good!

However you serve them, I hope you enjoy!
