I wanted to make ahead of time and put them in the freezer. Time saver for me in the mornings when every minute counts. I found that Pampered Chef makes this great little tool called the "Cut-n-Seal" Sandwich Press. I ordered one online from their store and it was sent to me--no party required!
This morning, I got some fresh bread and started making my homemade Uncrustables!
For the plain PB sandwiches, I just put the peanut butter in the middle.
Put it together and centered the Cut-n-Seal in the middle. Pressed down and then wiggled it to make sure that the tool cut all the way through the bread.
This is what I was left with after cutting and sealing. My composter is happy.
When I made the PB&J sandwiches, I put peanut butter on both pieces of bread so the jelly wouldn't make the bread soggy.
I made nine Homemade Crustable Sandwiches--I didn't use the heels of the bread, so I could have gotten 10 sandwiches out of one loaf. My kids don't like the heel. Sorry all you heel lovers.
I labeled the ziplock baggies "PB" and "PB&J" and put them in the freezer.
The Pampered Chef "Cut-n-Seal" tool is awesome! Parents with kids that take cold lunch, run out and get one of these babies! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
