One thing I don’t let go bad is bread. My family do go through a lot of bread, so it never has a chance to get stale. However, if it doesn’t get eaten, or I find bread reduced in the supermarket, I like to ensure it gets used by making up sandwiches and freezing them.
I find that as long as you freeze them in singles, or in a pack with baking parchment between them to allow for easy retrieval, they freeze and defrost well. I take sandwiches out the night before they are needed to defrost overnight in the fridge.
Ideal sandwich fillings to freeze:
- Cooked meats
- Grated cheese
- PB and J (Jam can make the bread a little soggy, so use sparingly)
- Chocolate spread
Fillings not to freeze:
- Boiled eggs (they can become rubbery)
- Salad greens or tomatoes and cucumbers (they become limp once thawed)
Make up your sandwiches and ensure they are wrapped tightly in film or foil. Keep them in your freezer for up to 3 months.
