Sneak-Wiches

I’m a big fan of making things ahead so they are ready to grab when we’re in a rush. "Sneak-wiches" are a good example of this method. Much like the packaged versions in the grocery store, this is a homemade, healthier version of the conveniently made-ahead sandwich that you keep in the freezer. The key is to remove the crusts of the bread and crimp together the edges to "seal" the sandwich together. I suggest making several sandwiches at a time, and freeze each individually in a plastic bag. There are several filling options below.

Ingredients

For filling option 1

  • 1 Tablespoon Sneaky Chef Orange Purée*
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter

  • 1 Tablespoon mashed avocado

  • 2 slices sandwich bread, ideally whole grain
  • 1 Tablespoon filling of your choice

For filling option 2

In a small bowl, mix the filling ingredients.

For the sandwich

Trim crust off bread. Use a rolling pin to roll out each slice of bread on a cutting board until flattened (alternatively, use the palm of your hand to flatten the bread). Spread about a tablespoon of the fillings on each flattened slice of bread, keeping about ¼ inch away from the edges. Crimp the edges together with your fingers, then put sandwich in a plastic bag and freeze until ready to eat. Put in lunch box frozen and it will defrost by lunch time.
