10 Lego Bento Lunches

10 Lego Bento Lunches Collage

Since I have several nephews who love building with Legos, I often receive requests for Lego themed meals. Here are 10 ideas for fun Lego shaped food.

Lego Lunch

This was previously published here. Depending on how cold you keep the lunch and how long before it is eaten, the yogurt bricks will lose part of their shape.

Container: ECO Lunchboxes

Bread: I baked french bread dough in a building blocks silicone mold. For more information, see this post.

Cheese: Cheddar cheese

Fruit: Raspberries

Vegetable: Carrot

Yogurt: Strawberry and Blackberry yogurt enhanced with a little bit of food coloring. I froze the yogurt in a building bricks silicone mold. For more information, see this post.

Lego Mashed Potato bento

Container: Book Bento Box

Contents: Broccoli, Lego brick – Cheddar cheese mashed potatoes cooled in the refrigerator then shaped by hand with small round details on top, strawberries, blueberries, homemade Lego picks

Lego Rice for Lunch

This lunch was previously published here as part of a Lego Day I hosted at my house.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Peaches with homemade Lego picks

Bottom Left: Pistachios with Lego bricks drawn with food safe marker

Right Side: Rice Lego bricks – cooked Nishiki rice with salsa, tomato circles on top (mix some salsa into hot cooked rice, line mini loaf pans with plastic wrap, add salsa rice to lined loaf pan, cover rice with plastic wrap, press down, take out of mini loaf pan), spinach

Lego-Lunch

This is my first Lego lunch I ever made. My nephew put together a few bricks to go with it.

Container: Ziplock

Top Left: Blackberry yogurt: I dyed some bricks blue and kept some natural. I froze the yogurt in a building bricks silicone mold. Inspiration was from Veggie-Bento via a guest post on Bentoriffic.

Bottom Left: Watermelon – I used a large pastry bag tip to make the Lego dots.

Right Side: Cheddar cheese – I used a small pastry bag tip to make the Lego dots. Bread – I baked drop biscuit dough and french bread dough in a building blocks silicone mold. I used both types to see which one turned out better. The drop biscuit dough resulted in holes instead of bumps. The french bread dough resulted in a few bumps and a few holes. The drop biscuit dough was more consistent. Lego Man with Shield – I froze chocolate in a mini Lego figure ice cube tray, I cut a shield from a Wegmans Fruit Flat. I decorated the shield with a sprinkle leaf. I used melted chocolate to attach the shield to the Lego man.

2 Sheep Themed Lunches

2 Sheep lunches Collage

You are probably not surprised (because my blog is called Eclectic Lamb) that I like lambs and sheep. Today I am sharing an open-faced sheep shaped sandwich and a roll made into a sheep with the help of a little chocolate. Here are some other sheep and lamb themed food and crafts. I also have a Pinterest board dedicated to lamb and sheep shaped food.

Sheep Cream Cheese Sandwich Lunch

Recently I received a few new sheep cookie cutters so I decided to use two in this sheep themed lunch.

Container: LunchBots Trio

Top Left: Sheep open-faced cream cheese sandwich – toasted wheat bread (cut with cookie cutter), cream cheese, chocolate sprinkles, raw broccoli

Top Right: Apple, cut-out with mini sheep cutter – pushed small cutter into apple, removed, used tip of knife to remove the skin, added lemon juice to prevent browning, walnuts

Bottom: Raw cauliflower, olives

Sheep Bread Lunch

I made this funny sheep bread meal as part of dinner for my nephew. I put the chocolate on the bread shortly before he ate it. Maybe it would have looked better with feet. I think it bothered my nephew that there was not a body so he drew one in using a sheep pick dipped in chocolate. (see image below)

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Clementine

Bottom Left: Cheddar cheese

Right Side: Sheep shaped bread with chocolate face and candy eyes, spinach

Snowman Mashed Potatoes Bento Lunch

Snowman mashed potatoes

I made this funny looking snowman mashed potatoes meal for myself with a little help from my Mom as I am recovering from shoulder surgery. I used dried blueberries which was a little strange with the mashed potatoes but I had them in the house. Perhaps black olives would also look nice and taste better with the mashed potatoes?

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Cheddar cheese mashed potatoes, dried blueberries, carrot, broccoli

Top Right: Pistachios

Bottom Right: Rold Gold Peppermint Dipped Snowflake pretzels

Snowman Bread Lunch

Snowman Bread

I made this for my pistachio loving nephew as part of a make ahead dinner. My main critique is I made the bread too big so it only fit sideways. I also wonder how the black grapes fit into the theme but they were sweet. Anyway, my nephew did not complain and happily ate this meal.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top: Snowman shaped bread using this recipe (my niece and nephews love this recipe!), dried blueberry details, sliver almond nose, pistachios

Bottom Left: Black grapes

Bottom Right: Snowman – hard boiled egg with food coloring marker details and carrot nose (I have heard that when using food coloring marker on a peeled hard boiled egg the color can bleed but it did not in my case and it sat in the refrigerator for several hours before serving)
