My children beg and plead for uncrustables (they hate the crusts!) but honestly I cannot justify the price. $7.99 regular price for 10 sandwiches works out to .79 each. Even on sale with a coupon it would still cost over 25 cents each.
Instead I make a DIY version for just a fraction of that!
I was given a Pampered Chef Cut & Seal (retails for $9.50 online OR I also found a similar device at my dollar store except it is square!)
Bread: .87 special at Harris Teeter = about .08 per sandwich
Jelly: .25 on sale with a coupon= about .02 per serving
So for a total of .10 per sandwich I can make homemade uncrustables! Here is how I did it.
Step 1: Start out with sandwich bread and jelly (add peanut butter if you want – the peanut butter in my pantry cost me less then 50 cents a jar so add about 5 cents a sandwich if you use peanut butter)
Step 2: Jelly the sandwich ! You won’t have to go all the way to the edges because it will be cut off.
Step 3: Cut & Seal!
