Make Your Own Homemade “Uncrustables”

Several months ago someone asked me if I had an idea for a homemade version of “Uncrustables” sandwiches. For those of you unfamiliar with Uncrustables…they are basically crustless sandwiches that are crimped around the edges to seal the filling inside. The most popular variety being peanut butter and jelly. I remember thinking at the time that was a really good idea and actually made several attempts to make some..but for the life of me couldn’t figure out how! So I shelved the idea for future consideration.

Today I took the idea down off the shelf and gave it another shot! Thanks to the inspiration from Cute Food For Kids! After reading Tiffany’s blog post about Pocket Sandwiches I realized the important piece of equipment I’d been missing…..a plastic cutting board! DUH! 🙂 I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

How To Make Homemade “Uncrustables”:

First you will need two slices of SOFT bread.  It can been wheat or white, or whatever kind you fancy, but it needs to be fairly soft in order to stick together. If yours is a little dry, try sticking it in the microwave for a few seconds. For my son, I use homemade gluten-free bread.

Trim off the crusts (thus the term “crustless”).

Add a glob (yes, that’s a technical term) of peanut butter to one crustless slice, and a glob of jam or jelly to the other slice.

Spread the PB&J on the bread, but not all the way to edge.

Place the two crustless slices together and then grab a small plastic cutting board (or something similar) and press each edge of the sandwich together. Trim any excess bread.

Crazy simple huh!?! And I don’t know why…but these little gems were SO TASTY! There’s just something about food with a “filling” I guess. I had eaten two sandwiches before I knew it. Which isn’t necessarily a good thing…except to illustrate how tasty they were. 😉

I really was quite astonished at how easy this idea turned out to be. When I first was trying to figure out how to make one of these I was completely over-thinking the whole thing!

Sometimes the BEST ideas really ARE the SIMPLEST! 🙂
