This sandwich is the ultimate comfort food because it’s made with simple and affordable ingredients. A jam sandwich can be made with a slice of simple bread; the ingredients are usually mixed fruit jelly or jam. The jam which I have used in this recipe is mixed fruit jam by Kissan. Homemade jam can also be used for this recipe.

Also, it is essential to use the correct choice of bread while making a jam sandwich. The bread used in this recipe is thick, soft white milk bread. It is not recommended to use sandwich bread because it is rough and is not sweet enough, unlike milk bread. I used the sweet milk bread from Brittania.

How to make a Jam Sandwich Instructions with pictures:

Step 1: The first step while making sandwiches is to keep all the necessary ingredients nearby. You would need bread slices, jam, a small wooden plate, a medium-sized spoon and a sandwich knife.

Step 2: Firstly, unwrap the sliced bread packet. Now remove the top layer or first piece of the bread because it is not suited for eating because it has only one side suitable for eating. The other side of the bread would be over-baked and give you an unpleasant experience; hence, that piece alone can be left away.

Step 3: Place two slices of bread on a plate. Next, make a sandwich with the bread, like this. You can also fold it over the top and spread both sides of the bread with mixed fruit jam.

How to Spread the Jam

Now, carefully tear the aluminum foil from the top of the jam container. Take a spoon and gently take 1/2 teaspoon of jam from the container. Slowly spread some of the jam on the slice of bread side by side. I will show you how to spread the jam on the bread for the best experience. Place the spoon at a 45-degree angle to the bread on the plate. Now gently spread the jam against the bread. Now rotate the spoon well, and wipe the inverted spoon over the bread. This helps to provide a consistent jam layer on the bread.

Step 4: Once the jam is spread on one layer of the sliced bread, it’s time to spread the jam on the second slice of bread. Most people prefer jam spread on only one sliced bread. But for a more optimal experience, I recommend jam spread on both slices of bread.

Step 5: Now that the jam spread is done on both slices of the bread, gently take one slice and stack it on top of the other. The jam side of the bread should touch each other while stacking them on top of each other.
