DIY Frozen Peanut Butter & Jelly "Crustables"

September 3, 2020

This is our first week back to school! It is a lot different from years past. That's for sure! I have two sons doing "virtual learning" from home and one son doing a "hybrid". Lunchtime can be hectic so I wanted to share this special tip with you again. It makes lunch SO easy!

My boys love the frozen "Crustables"! But of course, I think that the high price of them is ridiculous! Here is how you can save money and make them yourself, without having soggy bread. I found bread for sale for only $.50 a loaf! So I am going to sit down with two loaves and make 22 sandwiches! I love having a freezer full of these frozen "Crustables"!

DIY Frozen Peanut Butter & Jelly "Crustables"


Loaf of bread

Peanut Butter

Jelly or Preserves

Sandwich bags

  1. Take two pieces of bread and spread a thin layer of peanut butter on each slice.

  2. Place a spoonful of jelly onto one of the slices of bread and spread the jelly. Having the peanut butter on both pieces of bread keeps the jelly from making the bread soggy.

  3. Place the peanut butter slice on top of the jelly slice, cut in half and place the sandwich in a sandwich bag.

  4. Repeat until you are done with the loaf. I usually get about 10 to 12 sandwiches out of a loaf.

  5. When all of the sandwiches are made and bagged, place the sandwiches back into bread loaf bag and store in the freezer.

  6. Take the sandwiches out of the freezer in the morning and they will be thawed by lunchtime. Although I do have one son who likes them frozen!

I hate to waste food and never cut the crust off of my boy's sandwiches. If your child doesn't like the crust, you can always use a mason jar lid or buy an uncrustable maker on Amazon.

This year has been hard enough so it is nice to have something to make it a little easier! You will always want to have a freezer full of "Crustables" too!
