These tasty, portable Turkey Sandwich Skewers are perfect for lunches or a summertime picnic. They’re a deconstructed turkey sandwich, and therefore less messy. YUM.
Turkey sandwiches get a bad rap, don’t they? Not anymore!
…totally kidding. Obviously this single post isn’t going to change the reputation of turkey sandwiches, but maybe it will help. If anything, it’ll show you a new and way more exciting way to enjoy the classic turkey sandwich.
May I present…turkey sandwich skewers!
Tomorrow is International Picnic Day, which is pretty perfect because it’s a Saturday. When was the last time you went picnicking? For me, it’s been ages! Seriously—going to the park, packing a lunch and just enjoying the sunshine is long overdue for this gal. If/when (when Erin, when!!) I have a picnic, I’m absolutely packing these turkey sandwich skewers. How cute are they?! Though I try not to eat them as often as I used to (which was every day..), turkey sandwiches are still a favorite lunch of mine. I can’t help it—they’re just so simple, tasty and customizable! Turkey sandwich skewers are a deconstructed, less messy way to enjoy the same thing, and they also make for a great party appetizer (you know I’m all about the apps!).
These particular skewers feature turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and the Good Seed variety of Dave’s Killer Bread. I know I talked up the white bread last time, but guys, I am ALL about this seedy bread! It’s the sweetest variety (sweet as in taste, not sweet as in cool… just to clarify!), contains 4g of fiber and 5g of protein per slice and is of course certified organic and non-GMO project verified. I’m all about it!
Truthfully, I didn’t do the best job measuring out ingredients for these babies. In my opinion, it’s one of those recipes that will vary greatly depending on the number of people you’re trying to feed. My recommendation is to purchase a pound of deli turkey meat, a box of cubed cheese, a container of cherry or grape tomatoes, a head of lettuce, and a loaf of Dave’s Killer Bread. Next, you’ll just form an assembly line with your ingredients and start putting these sandwich skewers together! They’re obviously not hard to make, and you’ll probably have ingredients leftover which is never a bad thing.
Just as a reminder, you can use this store locator to find a store near you that sells Dave’s Killer Bread. If there isn’t one don’t worry—it’ll be popping up in thousands of stores nationwide throughout the year!

Turkey Sandwich Skewers
- Turkey deli meat
- Cubed cheese (I used dolby-jack)
- Tomatoes (cherry or grape), sliced
- Romaine lettuce, broken into bite-size pieces
- Dave’s Killer Bread, Good Seed variety, cut into bite-size pieces
- Place ingredients in somewhat of an assembly line and begin putting the sandwich skewers together.
- Technically, the order doesn’t matter, but I did bread, turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato.
**The amount of ingredients you will need will vary greatly depending on how many skewers you’re making. For each individual skewer, I used 4 pieces of bread (pieces, not slices), 1 slice of turkey meat (cut into thirds), 3 cubes of cheese, 1 tomato (cut into thirds), and 2 pieces of lettuce
Q: Favorite kind of sandwich? When was the last time you were on a picnic?
