Freezing your sandwiches can save preparation time and lunch money. Whether you're preparing meals for the workweek or preserving leftovers, following some simple tips about proper freezing techniques can keep those ham and cheese sandwiches tasty and safe.
How Cold and How Long?
Keep your freezer at zero degrees Fahrenheit and don't store sandwiches more than a few weeks.
Freezers can't work magic. Start with fresh products. Don't try to freeze a sandwich that is already going bad.
Use Cling Film, Not Tin Foil
Don't wrap sandwiches in aluminium foil. In addition to providing a less airtight seal, metals from the foil can seep into your sandwiches when they're frozen. Use cling film instead.
Always double-wrap your sandwiches in freezer-grade bags to avoid freezer burn.
Bread and Butter
Butter the inside of the sandwich bread to keep moisture from the ham and cheese from seeping into the bread and making it soggy.
Allow your sandwich to thaw for a few hours. Don't try to microwave it; you'll likely end up with a gooey mess. Apply any condiments after thawing.
