Best Freezable Sandwich Filling Recipes
Last Updated on
Now is the perfect time to start packing some food. School days are so busy that it’s hard to sketch out outfits, let alone delicious and healthy lunches, so turn to frozen sandwich recipes .
Make those sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them, well packaged and labelled so you can know what you’ve got, then just pick one from your freezer for school days and pop it in the insulated lunch boxes. Lunch boxes should be insulated and make sure you have a box of frozen gel packets to catch. This will keep the temperature below 40 degrees F, so the sandwiches will thaw slowly for lunch, but are still safe to eat.
You can modify these recipes however you like. Use a different bread, change the cheese or veggies, and add breads like honey mustard or soft cream cheese mixed with herbs. Make sure you write down the changes you make so you can recreate your masterpieces.
If there are leftovers (doubtful!), tell your child to throw them away. These insulated sauces aren’t made to cool food; they can keep food cool for a few hours.

These cute little sandwiches are the perfect size to hold a baby. And the filling is light and pleasing to the little one. The shredded carrot sneaks in a bit of nutrition too.

This is chicken salad sandwich at its most basic and delicious. I don’t think there’s a kid out there who won’t want to eat it (unless they’re vegetarian).

This great sandwich is packed with nutrition and flavor. If you plan to freeze this sandwich, make sure it doesn’t freeze with lettuce and tomato. Pack them separately and slide them into the lunch box.
