Question freezing sandwiches

I have frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with great success, but what about deli meats? In particular, ham. My hubby loves ham on onion rolls for lunch. I would love to make a bunch and freeze them the way I do PB&J, but I had heard that ham doesn't freeze well???

Freezing Ham

My son's school has a Ham and cheese on a pretzel role sale from time to time, where we are required to sell a certain amount. We often get stuck buying more than we can eat imediately, so I through a few in the freezer. Once I did not take them out until three month's later, and they were fine. The ham was just as good as the day I put froze them. My mother-in-law freezes her chipped chopped ham all of the time because she lives alone, and she always has a lot left over.
Ham, that is not deli meat ham, on the other hand, does not always freeze well for me. I would probably have better luck if I used air tight packaging. I use it for soups and Ham and Cabbage boiled dinner after it is frozen, but it does not slice well for sandwiches, or have its original flavor.

Thanks for the info Patty! I'm glad to hear of your success because I bit the bullet and froze a couple of sandwiches. I sent one with my unsuspecting hubby this morning when he went to work. LOL

This will be such a time saver for me!

Freezing Sandwiches

When you freeze PB & J and you take it out and unthaw it do you have trouble with the bread being soggy??

The deli meat sandwiches that you mentioned when you are freezing them do you put the mustard or mayonaise on them or do you send that separetly with your DH or kids?

Thanks

Jackied

The PB&J sandwiches are NEVER soggy! It's perfect! In fact, my two little ones just had them for lunch. I took them out of the freezer, cut them in half while still frozen, then let them sit for about ten minutes on the plate on the counter.

The ham sanwiches, I put mustard on them, but no lettuce or anything, just mustard, ham, and American cheese. However, you are not supposed to freeze mayonaisse, I can't remember why, but it does something to it that screws it all up LOL!

Freezing Sandwiches

You can freeze lunchmeats. When I was younger, my dad would make up a bunch of sandwiches and freeze them. He froze turkey & cheese sandwiches for himself and ham & cheese sandwiches for me. I was (am) very picky and the sandwiches always tasted great. Just don't put the mayo---pack a little container and add that before eating!!!!

Thanks so much! Have you ever heard of mustard being a problem? I think it's ok as it isn't egg based.

!! THANKS TO EVERYONE!!

I am so happy that I found Family Corner. I have gotten more good information and wonderful recipes off of this site in the past week then I think I have anywhere.

You are all so very kind and thanks for sharing. Sandi is so full of wonderful information. We are lucky to have so many talented and wonderful folks sharing their experiences!!!

Where would we be without Amanda the moderator and all of her fantastic mixes!!!!

I can't hardly wait to read the posts each day! We just had an ice storm here in Michigan and I have been several hours without power. Lots of down lines and tree limbs - pretty scary. It has been hard not to be able to read the column - sounds pretty childish doesn't it

Thanks again to all for your help and wisdom

Jackied
