Antipasto Squares {Winning}

I’ll never forget the first time I tasted these Antipasto Squares (and I’m sure my teammates who were with me won’t either). 

We were at an away tennis match, where traditionally the home team provides a spread of food. 

These little bites of ooey-gooey-love got our attention in a hurry.  

I have no idea if we won or lost our match that day. However, there’s no question that leaving with the recipe for Antipasto Squares was a Win!

I have since made these yummy squares many times. Most recently I shared a batch at a neighborhood gathering.  They were a hit!

Antipasto Squares Step 1

The smell of warm buttery croissants alone draws you in. 

Combine that with all your favorite Italian meats and cheeses and you’ve got flavor magic. 

The roasted red peppers give them that familiar antipasto flavor which all comes together as they bake. 

There’s no question, these Antipasto Squares are rich.  I found cutting them into 1 1/2″ squares gives you a nice two-bite sample that’s easy to handle and allows you to come back for more with no very little guilt ;)  

These are a fantastic party food served warm or perhaps even better at room temperature.  And if you happen to be throwing a Game Day Party these Antipasto Squares are a fan favorite!


For my college kids cooking in an apartment…. Make these!! They’re so easy and everyone will love them!
