Freezing Peanut Butter & Jam Sandwiches Recipe
If you have kids in school, making a month's worth of peanut butter and jam sandwiches can make making lunches a breeze. Simply toss a frozen sandwich into the lunchbox in the morning and it will be perfectly thawed by lunchtime.
- Two or three loaves of bread
- Peanut Butter
- Think variety - different types of bread (ie. raisin bread one day, whole wheat bread the next) as well as different types of jam (try blueberry or orange marmalade rather than just the standard strawberry) to keep things from getting boring.
- Cover one side of each slice with peanut butter, being sure to go to the edges. Then put jam on half of the slices, leaving about half an inch from the edge on all sides. Put the sandwiches together, and the peanut butter will "seal" the jam inside and keep them from getting soggy as it thaws. Seal in freezer bags or use a vacuum sealer.
On serving day
- On lunch day, simply put a frozen sandwich (straight from the freezer, no need to thaw before hand) when you make lunches in the morning, and it will be thawed by morning.
We find that bread other than "squishy white bread" holds up the best when thawing, however, most kids don't mind 🙂
