These are very small and easy-to-eat skewers with soft cubes of beef fillet alternating with tiny blocks of bread. Rather like antipasto for adults, and a perfect size for kids. Keeping the meat and bread pieces small is important, as they must be cooked really quickly on all sides so that the bread toasts beautifully rather than burns. I like to make them into about 1 cm (½ inch) cubes but, if you like, you can make them a dash bigger. You will need to marinate the meat in the herbs and oil for a few hours before you barbecue them. Adults can add some ground dried chilli to their marinade. If you’re using bamboo skewers, remember to soak them in water first so that they don’t catch fire on the barbecue. I love to serve this with a handful of home-made salted potato crisps and a butter lettuce salad. If you don’t have time to make your own crisps, even just a few bought crisps is nice.
