I have been sent a question that I’d like to answer on Culinary Questions with Kimberly today.
The question was “How do you Freeze Sandwiches?”
Well, I haven’t had to actually freeze a sandwich before, but if I had to, this is exactly what I would do. Watch the video to find out:
What I would do is put the made sandwich flat inside of a resealable plastic freezer bag.
I would definitely stay away from fresh vegetables on the sandwich like lettuce or tomato, as when they freeze, it makes them not very appetizing and soggy. Simply add those ingredients freshly after defrosting the sandwich, if desired.
I would stick with meats and cheeses, condiments don’t seem like they would cause any kind of issue either and would defrost nicely.
When defrosting, I would take it out of the freezer about 45 minutes before serving or eating and allow it to simply defrost itself on the countertop with the bag open. The reason I’d leave the bag open while defrosting is to allow any ice crystals that have condensed can evaporate while defrosting, instead of getting the bread wet, which is definitely not an appetizing thing.
I hope you enjoy this Sandwich post on Cooking with Kimberly. Until next time…
