Pocket Sandwiches

they‘re quick and easy to make, and they make boring sandwiches cool to bring anywhere. kids can help make the pockets and choose the fillings, its really simple! also, it‘s great for messy fillings like egg mayo or drippy ones like jam, cause the pockets keep them in. u can microwave them to warm them up too 🙂

Ingredients

  1. Sandwich Fillings
  2. 2 tbsp jam (any flavour works)
  3. 2 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or chunky doesnt matter)
  4. 2 tbsp tuna spread in mayo (i used the canned kind for convinience )
  5. 1 tbsp sweet corn kernels steamed (some store have it in the frozen section)
  6. chicken mayo filling
  7. 2 tbsp mayo
  8. 1/2 chicken breast boiled and shredded
  9. 1 tbsp sweet corn kernels steamed (some store have it in the frozen section)
  10. making it
  11. 12 slice bread (any kind)
  12. 1 cup ( the wider the mouth the bigger the pockets)

Method

  1. decide what fillings you want in your pocket sandwiches these are just some suggestions they‘re meant to be easy and convinient to make for a school lunch and kids can help with the sealing of the pockets for their snackshpuld take no more than 5 mins to make
  2. for chicken mayo filling just mix the shredded chicken breast with mayo add salt and pepper to taste if u like and a half the sweet corn makes enough filling for one pocket
  3. making it: put the fillings in the center of one slice of bread dont spread the jam out it willfillthe pocket nicely once youre done
  4. you can add sweet corn to the tuna personally I find the sandwich more interesting that way
  5. cover with another slice of bread and makesure the edges line up
  6. use the CUP and place it MOUTH DOWN over the filling press the cup down onto the sandwich sealing it and making a pocket think of the cup as a cookie cutter there are square sandwich moulds available that you can use but I just use a cup to be quick
  7. the pocket sandwich should separate easily fromthe crust you can toast the pocket if you prefer the leftover bread edges can be used in toast soldiers eggy bread edges or duck feed at your local park enjoy!
