Need Do Ahead Sandwiches for Freezer...
[Return to Topics]

I have a Graduation May 25. Would like to do
my sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them.
I do not know what freezes well, or what would
be simple. (We have all kinds of track meets,
plus I have health issues, etc., so do-ahead
would be a plus!)
Also, are there any types of buns that freeze
well? (My MIL made sandwiches once and froze them ahead of time for our party, and they
tasted kinda weird (buns and meat both!) but a lot of her food has, ha, ha!) Thanks for any help!

I know this sounds kinda weird, but anytime we're expecting to feed an assorted crowd "something", it always turns out cake & sandwiches (we call them "funeral sandwiches") . The local store sells fresh-ground sandwich spread - not sure of the recipe but they take bologna, pickles, olives, pimento, celery, mayonaisse and run everything thru a meat grinder. Once you get a loaf of bread open, they're fast to make with a spatula and can be frozen awhile. Darn things are good too!

I think they sell it under the label of "Ham spread". Wondered if it is really ham? Now I
am curious. Will have to give it a try! Thanks!

Well, my mother's old stand-by when we were kids and took lunch to school was turkey sandwiches. Roast the biggest turkey you can find and when it's cool, cut into thin slices. You can set up a sort of sandwich assembly line -- butter bread, lay it out in a double row, put as much turkey on as you want your sandwich to be, close the lid, put in plastic sandwich bag, wrap in foil and freeze. You can serve thawed sandwiches on a platter next to mayo, mustard, etc., so people can fix accordingly.

You could do this with a large baked ham as well. I've done catering in the past and found this to be the most cost-effective way of producing a quantity of good sandwiches without it costing a fortune.

If freezing the bread is a concern, just freeze the turkey slices. That way, you could thaw them and put out a platter of slices and basket of rolls and bread mixed; people can choose their own.
