Not going to lie. My kids think uncrustables taste like sand. And yet, they hold so much more appeal then my plain go to pbj. That's when I came across this DIY version from Oh So Delicioso and well, you have to check out this tutorial.
Every time I go to buy a box I feel sooooo silly. I mean I’m buying my child a pbj! Is there anything in the world that is easier than making a pbj? suriously? and I can make it a lot healthier too. I do like that they offer uncrustables in whole wheat now, but still–I can’t eat them (blah) so why am I buying them for my child? **MAJOR PLUS**, just like the uncrustables at the store, these crustables can be frozen in batches ready to be pulled out last minute and thrown in a lunch box.
These are just as easy as a regular pbj, all you need is a special little cutter called a “Cut-N-Seal” from Pampered Chef.
After I posted this yesterday it recieved attention. My little kindergartener LOVES his crustables (did I meantion he loves them yet?). If I make a regular sandwhich and cut it in half he is noooot happy. These babies are so easy I dont mind doing it for him.
*if you are making a batch and freezing the sandwhich you will want a thin coat of peanut butter on BOTH sides of the bread. Then the jam wont soak through.*
press. twist, seal. oh and no need to waste the crust- my kids usually eat it on the spot, or on the way to school :)
