My 2 girls take a bag lunch most days for school and neither cares for the crust of their sandwiches. I hated buying the frozen uncrustables from the store because of the price, so I decided to make my own. My 2 girls and I set up an assembly line and go through a whole loaf of bread at once to make and freeze these.


Make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as you normally would, then use a big, round lid (I use a wide-mouth pickle jar lid) or cup to cut out circle sandwiches. Place individual sandwiches into a baggy then place all sandwiches into a large ziplock bag to place in the freezer. You will have enough made to last quite a while.

I throw the crusts of the bread to our dogs or for birds and squirrels.

Hey, I have one of those gadgets Abigail is talking about!

If you're interested in one you can order them from The Pampered Chef or one of their representatives in your area. They're called 'Cut-N-Seal and are 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

Did you know that you can freeze peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for school lunch? It's true! Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread. On the other slice, spread a thin layer of peanut butter to act as a barrier for the jelly to avoid seepage, then spread on the jelly. Assemble the sandwich and freeze. In the morning, put the frozen sandwich in your kid's lunch box or bag and the sandwich will be perfect and ready for eating at lunchtime!

When making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for your toddler, my sons favorite, put the peanut butter on both slices of bread and then put the jelly in the middle. That way the bread doesn't get soggy!

When you are making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with crunchy peanut butter, it usually tears up the bread. I've found that putting the peanut butter on a plate (the amount that you plan to use), and putting it into the microwave for about a minute, softens it up enough that you can spread it onto the bread without having to tear up the bread and making a gigantic mess.

Another method is to store your bread in the freezer. This makes it last longer, and frozen bread is easier to spread crunchy peanut butter on. If you are making sandwiches in the morning to have for lunch, there is no danger that the bread won't be thawed by lunchtime.

My husband loves the "No Crust" frozen PBJ's. They are so high calorie, that I was excited to find that Wonder bread makes a little crust remover tool. I use a whole loaf of low calorie bread, low sugar peanut butter and low sugar jelly/jam.

To keep the jelly in a peanut butter sandwich from soaking into the bread or oozing out, put peanut butter, thinly spread, on both sides of the bread instead of one. Then put the jelly in the middle. By Lynn
