Good Morning, Friends!! Have question, already today. I buy those Smucker's frozen Peanut butter/jelly sandwiches for grandson. He doesn't care for regular made ones, since they seem to **drip, and make a mess**. I really want to make sandwiches he enjoys. The Smucker's ones are pretty expensive, $4.00/box of 4. Question is ~ do you think **panini makers** would make decent sandwiches? Have never used panini maker, but considering getting one. Thank You so much for your help. Sincerely, Kathy.

I use mini pitas for my son's sandwiches since he doesn't like drippy or messy sandwiches either

A panini press will not seal the sandwich. I think the mini pita idea is a great solution.

A panini sandwich with avocado mayonnaise is layered with smoked turkey, roasted red peppers, and provolone cheese, and pressed until the sandwich is crisp and toasted and the filling is melted.

It would depend on if you/he likes a heated/toasted sandwich. I'm sure they can be messy too. I like the idea of the pitas or Arnold makes a nice split flatbread that you can stuff with sandwich's all contained.

Kathy, just Google "Sandwich Sealer" and a variety come up. You just reminded me I have the Pampered Chef one that I need to locate. There are others available cheaper - even at grocery store, per reviews on the Wonder brand.

Could you seal your own by taking a fork and going around all the edges? Just like a ravioli.

Well it looks like sealing a sandwich is easy using a drinking glass. You should not have to buy anything. Here is a link that shows how to do it.

Good idea, Marie. Whatever you use, make sure to make croutons or stuffing with the crusts!!

Pampered Chef makes an item called "Cut and Seal" that makes the very sandwiches you are talking about. When my son was little, I would make up a bunch of them and freeze them (long before the store bought kind was around). You can make whole sandwiches by using 2 slices of bread or mini ones by folding the bread. I still use it often for mini sandwiches filled with chicken salad, ham salad, tuna salad, etc. ~ ~
