Growing up I used to love uncrustables. Recently we went on a road trip and I re-discovered them and became hooked on them again.
I love how easy they are as a grab and go lunch and how mess-free they are for my toddler.

How to Make Homemade Uncrustables

Place another slice of bread on top.
Push the larger uncrustable cutter (the crust remover) through the sandwich. Remove crust.
Push the sealer in the middle of the larger circle. Push down to seal.
Remove the uncrustable cutter and sealer and enjoy!
What Do I Do With Extra Bread?
After taking off the crust of the uncrustable, you can use the extra bread in other dishes!
Recipe Tips and Variations
Uncrustables are great frozen! To freeze, wrap tightly in saran wrap and then place in an airtight freezer bag. Freeze for up to 6 months. To defrost, take out to the freezer 5-6 hours before serving.
Frozen uncrustables are great for school lunches! Take directly from freezer and put in a lunch box and it'll defrost in time for lunch.
This recipe is customizable and can be used to make a variety of uncrustables. My favorites are peanut butter and nutella, tuna fish sandwiches, and ham and cheese.
