Ro and Ree have only recently started eating sandwiches, but they are already huge crust snobs. If even a hint of darker brown edging remains, the sandwich is heartlessly rejected. Whatever... can’t really say I blame them because (shhhh, don’t tell) I don’t like the crusts either.
So when I found this funky little KrustBuster Sandwich Maker, I HAD to order it immediately. And now that I’ve tested it out on our extremely discriminating four-year-old foodies, I’m happy to report that it got four thumbs up (six, if you count mine).
This little thing rocks! It cuts off the crusts and seals the edges, turning out something similar to Smucker’s Uncrustables:
Just put in your bottom slice of bread (the gummier the better, so something like Wonder Bread works perfectly). Add your toppings like PBJ or salami and cheese or whatever (I center the stuff and kind of leave the edges clean). Then add your top piece of bread and squeeze. (Ro and Ree love this part and fight for squeezing rights).
Peel the crusts off over the trash can (or birdfeeder or dog’s mouth):
And voila, you have a perfect little packet o’ sandwich with crust-free, sealed-up edges:
If you feel like decorating it, the kit also comes with cute suction cup shapes. Just pick one out and stick it to the inside top before closing the KrustBuster.
The girls had salami and provolone sandwiches today along with Japanese rice crackers and mini heirloom tomatoes on picks. They ate every crumb.
