My kids love uncrustables but I think they are too expensive. So I started making my own. I don't cut the crust off mine but it's the same concept. I make these during my OAMC session.
- 24 slices bread
- 1 (16 ounce) jar peanut butter
- 1 (12 3/4 ounce) jar jelly
- Apply peanut butter to one side of each slice of bread. Make sure you you spread the peanut butter out to the edges of the bread.
- Apply the jelly to one slice of the bread but keep jelly about a half an inch away from the edge of the bread on all sides. By doing this, the peanut butter will "seal" the sandwich and it will not get soggy.
- Put the sandwich together.
- Wrap and place in freezer bags.
- When ready to eat, pull amount of sandwiches needed and let thaw in fridge or in lunch box.
- You can use whatever type bread, peanut butter and jelly you like. The combinations can be endless.
My son is obsessed with Uncrustables, and when I was pregnant with my daughter I was too!!! I always am making him sandwiches with my PC Cut and Seal...but NEVER has it dawned on me to freeze them!!! Thank you so much! I just whipped up a whole tray full of these little guys...I stopped by Kroger when they were have there $.88 sale and got PB and Jelly for $.88 each and a loaf of their bread is $.78. I used half a jar of each, so for $1.66 I made 10 Uncrustables and have lots of crusts to use for home made bread crumbs! Thanks for this super idea and money saver!!
I might be crazy, but I think these sandwiches taste much better after freezing. I make a huge batch each week and pop a sandwich and an apple into my lunch sack for work. Couldn't be easier!
Great idea! My city is peanut free for schools but DH loves to take these to work and they're great for taking on picnics and will be perfect for the beach!
