Homemade PB&J Uncrustables

Homemade Uncrustables PB&J

School is back in session here in Missouri. That means it’s time to break out the lunch boxes and creativity.

My son is an avid fan of Uncrustables sandwiches. He actually eats them partially frozen. I like that he will actually eat what I put in his lunch box, but I would prefer to save a little money and control the ingredients being used.

Then I found the Sandwich Sealer and Decruster on Amazon. Ahhh! Lightbulb moment for me.

To assemble, make sure you get bread that is large enough to trim without hitting the crust.
You will need two slices of bread for each sandwich.
Spread the peanut butter on each slice of the bread, being careful to stay in the center and avoid where the cutting and sealing occurs.
Apply jelly to the middle of one slice.

I neglected to go this photo, but it is really self explanatory. Simply place the peanut butter only slice on top of the peanut butter and jelly slice (peanut butter side down).
Place the cutter on top of the sandwich and press down firmly (make sure crust is completely cut away).
Remove the crust while the cutter is still in place.
To seal, press down firmly and completely on the blue center sealing piece.
Lift off the cutter and place the sandwich in sandwich bag and place it in freezer.

Voila! Instant homemade PB&J crustless pocket sandwiches. You can go beyond PB&J and think outside of the box… think ham & cheese, peanut butter and banana, peanut butter and honey

    This is a great idea and since it’s still homemade, will taste better than a store bought one! Excellent!

  3. Sarah L says:

    Better than the mass market PBJs. What do you do with the crusts? Croutons?

  4. Thanks for the information. I had not seen this before. What a great way to make it special. Thanks for sharing!!

    You know, I never thought about it, but I do like the idea of a sandwich that doesn’t leak. That crust remover is on Amazon for as low as $4.79. You’ve got me considering it!

    Love to make home made uncrustables!! I make ours with my Pampered Chef Cut-N-Seal®, it’s one of my top selling products. I too do variations like ham and cheese, pizza pockets, even little pies. The kids (me too) love them!! =)

    Oh I want to make these, my grandson doesn’t like crust. I need to get one of those sandwich cutter/sealers.

  10. Nicole Dz says:

    These are extremely easy to make, I actually have the exact same cutter, I found it at our local dollar tree months ago. I think the homemade ones are a lot better then store bought. I my daughter does not like the crust on anything.
