A slice of pastrami, which I get from my local butcher shop. But you can also find it at any grocery store.
Pickled brussels sprouts represent the cabbage, which might be my favorite part of the skewer. They’re zesty and zingy, soaked in a spicy brine, plus they still hold a little crunch. You can find them in the condiments sections of a grocery store, or even places like World Market, which is where I got mine.
And pumpernickel bread to finish. This is a dark, slightly sweet rye bread traditionally made with sourdough starter and coarsely ground rye. It’s denser and heartier than a typical rye sourdough bread.
If you’re hosting a party for St. Patrick’s Day these skewers are a fun and unique way to pay homage to the best of Irish food. They’re so simple to make and can be prepared a day ahead of time, just add the toasts the day you serve. Pair them with a Guinness beer and you’re set!
