While exploring the newly launched Lemon 8 app, I stumbled upon this irresistible recipe from Easy Home Meals. Without hesitation, I knew I had to give it a try, and the results were beyond satisfying. The preparation process was a breeze, and the taste was simply delightful. I couldn't wait to share this gem with everyone here at Lia Rose Simply Home. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with this easy-to-make and delicious antipasto bake recipe from Easy Home Meals.

I'm constantly searching for fresh yet uncomplicated recipes. When I discover a hit that my entire family enjoys, we tend to stick with it for a while. This antipasto bake recipe will definitely be sticking around, it even pleased my finicky eaters.

During our recent family outing to the zoo, I decided to bring along a picnic lunch. However, I wanted to break away from the typical sandwich option. That's when I decided to pack this antipasto bake. I per-sliced it into squares and stored them securely in an airtight container before the trip. This strategy worked like a charm and ended up saving us a significant amount of money that we would have otherwise spent on food at the zoo.

The ingredients for this antipasto bake recipe offer complete customization. Feel free to substitute prosciutto with ham, switch up the cheese, and incorporate ingredients like black olives or banana peppers. In my own rendition of the recipe, I opted for ham over prosciutto and I pre cut the meat in small chunks. When preparing a dish like this antipasto bake, I've found that slicing the meat into smaller pieces makes the process much smoother. Whole slices of deli meat often tend to shift to one side while slicing, but smaller pieces provide better control.
