Freezer Sandwiches

In a lovely burst of nesting energy, I’ve finally spent the time to try out some freezer meals. I was writing a post with all the recipes I tried, but it was getting ginormous. So I’ll start with sandwiches!

Turkey Sandwiches Ready for the Freezer




Freezer Sandwiches

Freezing sandwiches. A friend of mine clued me into this brilliant idea a while ago. You’d be surprised how how good it feels to just pull a few sandwiches out in the morning and not have to worry about lunch. It also doesn’t take much time at all to prepare and store them!

Wrapping and Freezing. After making all your sandwiches, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and carefully load into a gallon (or bigger) ziplock bag. Just take care not to squish or stack them too high. You could also freeze them before loading into the bigger bag. Then write the sandwich type and date and pop them in the freezer! 

Thawing. The night before or in the morning, take the sandwiches out that you want for lunch and they should be thawed by then. 

Peanut Butter and Jelly/Honey
The trick is to put peanut butter on both sides of the bread to prevent soggy bread from jelly or honey. Honey is a little less prone to sogginess, but the jelly/jam did fine as well.

Lunchmeat Sandwiches
We don’t eat tons of lunch meat, but my son considers it a treat so we have it sometimes. I stuck with turkey, sliced cheese, and mayo, then added what I wanted on my sandwiches after thawing. 

Use Miracle Whip to avoid grainy mayo. Veggies should be added after thawing or they can turn mushy and soggy in the freezer. 

Chicken/Tuna Salad Pitas
Again, use Miracle Whip instead of regular mayo. Another idea is to try yogurt instead of Miracle Whip. I’ll try that next time. 

Make up your chicken/tuna salad and include onion, celery, and diced grapes. Stuff in pitas and freeze altogether, or freeze the salad separately to spread on bread after thawing. 

Egg Salad Sandwiches
My son loves these, and it’s nice to be not have to cook and prepare the egg salad part. It freezes pretty well, I think, as long as you don’t try to assemble the sandwich before freezing.

For more ideas and inspiration, check out my Pinterest Freezer Meals board. I added some freezer sandwich pins there too!

The next time you’re making sandwiches for the kids, take a whole loaf of bread and make up some for the freezer. It only takes about 15 minutes and it will make you happy later. 🙂
