Freezer Cooking: PB&J?!?!

Did you know that you can freeze peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? You can.

I am a huge fan of freezer cooking because it saves time and money, and I love new recipes and ideas of ways to keep my freezer stocked up. So while I know that there are people out there who do this, it is a concept that until recently I was completely unfamiliar with.

Yeah, I know that pb&j sandwiches are relatively easy and quick to make, but to have them frozen and ready for lunches, road trips or last minute picnics just makes it easy. They are really great for those times that you get a good deal on a loaf of bread because it is close to the sell by date.

"Won't they be soggy?" Nope. Here is how to prevent soggy bread:

Simply put a thin layer of peanut butter on the "jelly" side of the bread. This will act as a barrier, preventing the jelly from soaking through. Put each of the sandwiches in its own sandwich bag and then put all of those inside of the bread loaf bag before putting them into the freezer. This acts as extra protection against freezer burn. Take a sandwich out of the freezer to place in the kids' (or yours) lunch box in the morning and it will be thawed by lunch.
