Tradie’s Lunchbox: Antipasto Bento Lunch Box

This week for Tradie’s Lunchbox, I’m sharing an antipasto bento lunch box idea, using deli produce bought from our trip to Stanthorpe.

Of course, you don’t have to use the same products I have. But this gives you an idea of what can be packed into one of these styles of lunch boxes.

I bought this Bento style lunch box in a pack of 4 from Little Bento World over a year ago. I like them because the sections are big enough to fit a sandwich and larger baked goods that don’t always fit in the smaller compartments of other Bento style lunchboxes. I found they were affordable too, because you can get 4 lunchboxes for $30.

When we headed to Stanthorpe, we visited various cheese factories and delis. I also bought some pickles and pastes from the Bramble Patch.

These egglplant pickles are delicious. Topped with cheese and some cold meat, it made the best sweet and savoury treat.

An antipasto lunch box works best when packed during the cooler months. This prevents the cheese from sweating. It definitely needs to be transported in a cooler bag with an ice-pack to keep the deli contents cool.

To make this bento box a bit more heartier, I bought a tiger loaf bread roll.

You can use whatever antipasto foods you like.

In my antipasto lunch box I have

In your antipasto lunch box you could include:

  • Ham
  • Salami sticks
  • Peppers
  • Semi-dried tomatoes
  • Vegetable sticks

  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Crackers

I ate the contents of this lunch box over two days. The key to a good antipasto platter is including something with cheese, meat, fruit and a carbohydrate like crackers or bread.

Are you a fan of antipasto platters? Would you make one in your Bento lunch box?

  • I used to make something very similar for my kids’ lunches when they were small – Miss 20 loved her “little olibs and onions” (olives & cocktail onions with cubes of cheese) in preschool so much, that one of her friends’ mums asked me what it was cos her daughter kept coming home raving about how good my girl’s lunches were!

    • So cute! Esther used to love Olives too and now none of them will eat them. That’s ok, all the more for me. What a sweet memory about your kids lunches. xx
