Ingredients for DIY Uncrustables sandwiches


Softer bread works best for homemade Uncrustables. Also, depending on the exact size of your sandwich cutter and bread, you might need more or less filling.

Step 1

On a slice of bread, add about 3/4 tablespoon of nut butter to the center. Spread into a circle.

Avoid adding too much filling. If the sandwich is overstuffed, the bread will tear.

Step 2

On another slice of bread, add about 3/4 tablespoon jam. Spread into a circle.

Step 4

Using a sandwich cutter and sealer involves two steps. First, press the base into the bread, making sure to cut through both slices.

Several sandwiches

To freeze homemade Uncrustables, place the sandwiches on a tray in a single layer. This will keep them from sticking together. Once frozen, store the sandwiches in a resealable freezer bag. Thaw at room temperature and enjoy.
