Before You Start

Choosing the right ingredients

The first step in toasting a perfect wrap is selecting the right ingredients. Choose a wrap that is flexible and sturdy. Popular options include wheat, corn, and gluten-free varieties. For the fillings, consider a balance of protein, vegetables, and cheese. The fillings should not be too wet, as excess moisture can make the wrap soggy.

Preparing the Wrap

Before toasting, lay out your wrap and evenly distribute the fillings. Avoid overfilling as it can cause difficulties in toasting and may lead to a messy eating experience. Once filled, fold the wrap securely. A good technique is to fold the sides in first, then roll it up from the bottom, ensuring all fillings are enclosed.

Serving Your Toasted Wrap

Once toasted, let the wrap sit for a minute before cutting. This rest period allows any cheese to set slightly, making it easier to eat. Slice the wrap in half and serve with a side of your choice, such as salad, crisps, or a dipping sauce.

Tips for the Perfect Toasted Wrap

Experiment with different fillings. Toasted wraps are incredibly versatile, so feel free to try various combinations of meats, vegetables, and cheeses.

If using ingredients like tomatoes or cucumber, place them in the centre of the wrap, surrounded by other ingredients, to prevent the wrap from becoming soggy.
