Hello Skip to My Lou friends! I’m Melissa from No. 2 Pencil. Over at No. 2 Pencil, I share creative recipes, crafts, and DIY projects. With back to school in full swing, I thought it would be fun to share one of my favorite lunch tricks with you. These Crustless Freezer Sandwiches are so easy to make, and perfect for popping in the kiddos lunch pails.
Here is what you will need to make these sandwiches:
Soft fresh sandwich bread
Peanut Butter and Jelly, or your usual filling
Straight sided glass
Sandwich size plastic baggies
Step One: Spread a small amount of peanut butter on both sides of bread. Make sure you keep the peanut butter inside the diameter of the glass. Place a small amount of jelly on the other side.
Step Two: Use a straight sided glass as a cookie cutter and cut through bread.
Step Three: Remove sandwich from crust. The rim of the glass will seal the bread together. Since there is no peanut butter or jelly on the outer part of the bread, you can save those pieces for another use. They work great for making homemade bread crumbs!
Step Four: Pop the sandwich into a plastic baggie. Press to remove as much air as possible from the baggie and freeze. To pack in lunch, just remove from freezer and place in lunch box. Sandwich will thaw in baggie and be ready to eat by lunch time.
These little freezer sandwiches are a great time saver for our family. If you like this post, I would love for you to pop over and see more of my family friendly recipes and crafts! Thanks for letting me share, Cindy!
I agree very creative even though my kids are grown I do have a grand daughter and two grown men in the house (my son and hubby) its hard living around just men cause they are not talkative at all, they work hard though! see by my chatter here you can tell I don’t talk much LOL! anyway I love the idea of getting my hubby to eat them cause he eats to many little debbies and these look like those pink pom poms you know the ones I’m talking bout and he will snack on these instead I do think thank you Melissa for the cleaver tip! ………………………..Melissa (that’s my name too)
Very Cool idea!! I used to buy ones from the store but they are so expensive (and full of crap) so this is a great way to save some time and money! Thanks!
Have you tried this with lunch meat? Curious if it would hold up well. My son’s school won’t allow any peanuts at all but I love how easy this would be!
Thanks so much for letting me share:0) xoxo
I’m excited to try this for my son. Thank you!
Thanks for posting this recipe! I recommended this to my friend, and she immediately made it after seeing the method and the photographs! She just told me that it was delicious and greatly recommends this cute sandwich for all 🙂 Thank you again for having such a creative mind!!
Aargh! I just bought a press n seal crustless sandwich maker from a p. chef party last night! Why did I not think of a cup before hand!
