I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Last year, we started freezing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Freezing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches ensures that we always have a quick meal in the freezer and our bread rarely goes out of date. I make these sandwiches on the same day I purchase the bread from the grocery store. I find that if I wait, then my ingredients may go bad.
Freezing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches may be lazy meal prepping, but it is still meal prepping! Jerad eats his sandwiches for lunch, and I snack on mine for breakfast. We’ve been freezing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a year now, and have learned a few things along the way. Following these tips for success will almost ensure that your frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwich is never freezer burned or soggy.
The downside of freezing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is that the sandwiches only last four weeks. You’ll need to devour them quickly!
Freezing Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches: Three Tips for Success
- Spread peanut butter on both sides. Buttering both sides keeps the sandwiches from getting soggy when they are frozen.
- Mix up your peanut butter and jelly options. We frequently changed our peanut butter options and found out we love SunButter (sunflower butter) just as much as we do traditional peanut butter.
- Make the whole loaf of bread. It’s simpler to make the sandwiches in large batches. A loaf of bread makes us 15 sandwiches.
