We are going to have to get our ducks in a row to get out the door on time again after enjoying the lovely lazy mornings that come with home schooling.
Freezer sandwiches help a lot for our school mornings to run smoother. I batch make a few weeks sandwiches in advance, freeze them and just take it out in the morning to add to their packed lunches. By lunch time the sandwich will be thawed, beautifully fresh and ready to eat. It also keeps the lunch box nice and cool throughout the morning.
Most sandwiches can be frozen with success. Bread or wraps with cheese, meat, jam (and peanut butter, but remember no nuts for school). My kids love ham & cheese and jam & cheese (I know, weird!? You should try it though! Delicious!). If you add condiments like mayo, just make sure you add it between layers of meat or cheese. If it is in direct contact with the bread it can make the bread soggy.
This is how I do it:
Cut open 6 rolls like one big sandwich. Layer with filling of choice. Cut between rolls to split them up. Label the freezer bags and fill with rolls. Get rid of most of the air (I use a straw to suck out the air). Seal, freeze and ta-dah! Lunchbox sandwiches sorted. This really saves so much time not having to get everything out every morning or the night before to make sandwiches.
This is also great with the summer approaching and impromptu picnics or outings – you just grab sandwiches from the freezer and the bulk of the snacks are sorted.
Give it a go and let me know if it works for you too.
