Bubs and I were talking about diabetes camp. The last time he went, he had not yet been diagnosed with celiac. It turns out he has many fond memories of camp’s delicious Uncrustables. Uncrustables are frozen PB&J sandwich circles made by Smuckers.
We tried to think of a way to make gluten free Uncrustables. The major stumbling block for this project is the area, in square inches, of a slice of gluten free bread. It renders traditional sandwich-shaping tools useless.
This is the workaround we came up with.
Gather these materials:
Place two slices of bread on a sheet of wax paper large enough to envelop then as a sandwich.
Smear a modest glob of peanut butter at the center of each slice. The peanut butter will form a lipid bilayer, preventing excessive jam ooze and bread disintegration. Use much less peanut butter than usual—a mere teaspoon per side. Add a small dollop (about 1/4 tsp.) of jam to one side. If you put on more than this, it will blerp out at the edges. Close the sandwich. Fold the wax paper around it.
Put it in the tortilla press…
Rotate 180 degrees and press again. (Rrrrr.)
Select the largest possible biscuit cutter that will fit within the confines of the crust & cut your sandwich!
Wrap the tiny thing individually in its wax paper shield and store in an air-tight box in the freezer. Later on, you can simulate the behavior of a normal middle class person with a convenience food.
