Why is bread pudding disgusting

Can you freeze peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?

Q. This is going to seem like a crazy question, but I need to know! My kids love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in their lunches, but I'm tired of making all those sandwiches every day. On some mornings, I've run out of bread and I'm struggling to find something else for them that they like. I've been thinking about making enough sandwiches for the week and just sticking them in the freezer, but my husband thinks they are going to be gross and drenched. I don't want to waste time or money if it doesn't work. Can you freeze peanut butter and jam sandwiches?

A. That's not a crazy question at all! Who wouldn't want to spend less time having lunch? You can absolutely freeze peanut butter and jelly sandwiches without the bread getting soaked. However, there is a little trick if you want to make sure the jelly doesn't leak and turn the bread into pulp.

How do you freeze peanut butter and jam sandwiches?

Start your sandwiches with the freshest bread possible. Spread the normal amount of peanut butter on a slice of bread and then a very thin layer of peanut butter on the slice where you spread the jelly. This creates a barrier between the bread and the jelly, preventing the jelly from penetrating through. Then spread the jelly on this slice of bread as usual. Put the slices together. Slide the sandwich into a sandwich-sized freezer bag and seal the bag completely. Label and date the freezer bag. Repeat with the remaining desired number of sandwiches.

Store the sandwiches flat in the freezer, stacked on top of each other. Do not stand up the sandwiches while freezing or thawing as the jelly may leak and make the bottom of the bread sticky and mushy. Don't put anything heavy on the sandwiches in the freezer to prevent them from flattening completely. Sandwiches are kept in the freezer for about a month before they start to lose flavor.

To eat, remove the sandwich from the freezer night before you are ready to eat it. Put it in the refrigerator overnight to thaw, being careful to keep it lying flat. Once thawed, enjoy your sandwich! For best results, consume as soon as possible. Never refreeze frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
