Recipe type: Main
Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • 6 slices large whole wheat bread
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons jam or jelly, divided
  • Other Items Needed:
  • Sandwich Sealer & Decruster
Instructions
  1. Spread a tablespoon of peanut butter onto 3 slices of bread. Spread a tablespoon of strawberry jam onto the 3 remaining slices of bread. Place the slices of bread with peanut butter on top of the slices of bread with jam.
  2. Place Sandwich Sealer & Decruster in the center of the bread. Press down on the outer square. This will remove the crust. You will need to press firmly to make sure it goes all the way through.
  3. Then, press down firmly on the inner square to seal the sandwich. If you don't press down firmly, the sandwich will not seal all the way. Peel away the crust and serve!

Just in case my instructions weren’t clear enough, I’m going to show you how to use the sealer & decruster.
