How to wrap a sandwich like a pro

Next time you prepare your perfect sandwich and want to make it portable, try this trick for wrapping it up.

I learned this method when I was a teenager, doing my obligatory time as a Canadian at the nation’s most famous coffee and doughnut quick service restaurant. After wrapping thousands of bagels toasted with cream cheese, I got pretty good at it, only taking a few seconds to get the hungry, double-double loving customers their food.

Step 1: Use piece of waxed or parchment paper suited to the size of your sandwich. Bring edges together above the sandwich.

Step 2: Fold over 1-inch (2.5 cm) and continue folding over and down until you reach the sandwich.

Step 3: Fold over edges of both ends into triangles.

Step 4: Tuck edges under sandwich.

DONE! Try wrapping up these delicious sandwich recipes:
