We bought a set of these dough presses, and I started making my own at home for a fraction of the cost. I checked the price of a box of 4 Uncrustables today, and they are selling for $4.49
Step 1: Step 1 Gather Ingredients
Jelly or Jam
Melted butter or margarine (I used a spray margarine)
Step 2: Step 2 Assemble
Position the bread in the middle of the dough press. I found it helpful to push down in the middle where it will fold slightly. My Daughter used to cut away part of the crust prior to folding, but I don't find that necessary.
Step 3: Step 3 PRESS
While the sandwich is still in the press remove any excess bread. You can save that in the freezer to make croutons, or bread crumbs.
At this point your Uncrustable can be served.......OR make up a bunch, and wrap each in plastic wrap, and then put them all in a zip top bag, and store in the freezer. You can take a couple out at a time, and send to school with the kids, they will be thawed out by lunch time.
Step 4: Step 4 Make Them BETTER
They're GREAT......crisp, warm, and not messy at all.
You could use powdered, or granulated sugar on the top.
