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.
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
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.
I made this mashed potato Lego brick lunch for myself since I wanted to try something different with fun Lego food.
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
This lunch was previously published here as part of a Lego Day I hosted at my house.
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
This is my first Lego lunch I ever made. My nephew put together a few bricks to go with it.
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.
This colorful and easy Lego lunch was made for a nephew.
