Frugal Frankfurter Kabobs


For this dish, you can make a layer of spinach or lettuce or tomatoes or mangold on the plate.

Frugal Frankfurter Kabobs

The only “special” thing about this is purple potatoes. If you do not have them, use what you have: white potatoes cubes (previously cooked), tomato slices, stale bread cubes, sausage slices, zucchini or eggplant cubes, hard boiled eggs quarters, bell pepper slices, folded spinach leaves or whatever you are inspired to use or whatever useful you find in fridge.

It is not a must to use Frankfurters hot dog type. Medium hard cheese left after baking pizza can also be a layer for kabobs. In fact, if you lay hot kabobs on cheese, it will melt and give special taste to your frugal lunch. If you do that, skip melting triangle cheese at the end. Quantity of ingredients I used, give three kabobs, so you need three kabob sticks (wooden or stainless steel).
