INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS

Meats

You can use any type of meat for this Antipasto On A Stick appetizer. I chose to use salami, proscuitto and pepperoni. You can also use turkey pepperoni, coppa, capicola and sopressata, etc. You can even add some chicken sausage sweet or spicy italian sausage as well. You just need to cook the sausage rounds and then add them the same way you would add the salami. For a healthier option you can use turkey peppersoni and chicken sausage since they are the meats with less fat content.

Cheeses

For this recipe I used Provolone and Mozzarella. You can use fresh mozzarella or firmer mozzarella. They will both work perfectly on a stick. You can also use gruyere, manchego, colby, cheddar,  havarti, or muenster and cut into cubes before putting on the skewer.

The crowd pleaser

I always add a little fruit to my Antipasto On A Stick for a pop of color. Here I used Oranges! Theyre fresh and colorful. You can also use any other fruit from grapes to grapefuits. Your choice!

HOW TO MAKE A VEGAN ANTIPASTO

To make this Antipasto On A Stick dairy free you can use vegan/dairy free cheese! There are a wide variety of vegan cheeses out there including blocks of vegan mozzarella, cheddar, or swiss! You can choose to add vegan meats to this skewer appetizer. You can add vegan cold cuts or sliced meat as well as crispy tofu. You can also add some air fried polenta cubes in place of the meat as well.

TASTE & TEXTURE

The texture of this Antipasto On A Stick is exactly the same as a traditional cheese or charcuterie board. Its mixed with hard and soft cheeses, meats and foods you can eat by hand and snack on. You can choose to use spicy or more mild meats, soft or harder cheeses. There are endless options for these skewers.

HOW TO MAKE

DIRECTIONS

1. Cut sticks into 6” lengths.
2. Diced up cheese into 1” cubes.
3. Slice up Orange wedges into a similar size piece.
4. Layer the meats, cheese and oranges on the stick. I like to keep the cheese and oranges for the ends to make sure nothing falls off. The meats I try to handle as little as possible so they don’t look overworked. I just fold them a few times and slide them into the stick.

EXPERT TIPS & TRICKS

When making these appetizer skewers I make sure to alter the order of the ingredients as i continue down the stick. You do not want all the mozzarella at the top and all the oranges at the bottom. You want to make sure they ingredients are properly rotated bteween and slightly spaced apart. Do not pack the skewers with as much cheese and meat as you can fit on. They look betteer when they are 50-75% full and ingredient are evenly spaced out.

HOW TO SERVE & STORE

These can be prepped 24 hours aead of time and stored in an air tight container for 24 hours. They can stay up to 26 hours but i would not prep before that.

Since this is fresh cheese and meat it can be frozen. Store in the freezer in an air tight container for up to 3 months. Remove from freezer and let come to room temperature before serving.
