Today Extra host Belinda Russell sends social media into a frenzy as she reveals her ‘clever’ toasted cheese sandwich hack

Channel Nine star Belinda Russell delighted fans on Monday when she revealed her toasted cheese sandwich hack.

The Today Extra host, 42, posted a video to Instagram explaining how she carefully cuts and folds the wrap to achieve a café-quality snack.

After laying down the filling for the wrap, Belinda makes a small cut in the bread from the centre to the outside edge.

She proceeds to fold the wrap in a clockwise direction, after putting avocado, cheese, ham and tomato in each quarter.

Lifting from the cut edge, she pulls the ham over the avocado, then folds it over the cheese and then finally over the tomato.

She’s left with a triangular parcel which can be toasted easily in a sandwich press.

‘So clever. It was 11pm and I had to try it and guess what, it was yummy, thanks you are the best,’ one fan commented below the video.

‘That is awesome! Why am I so excited about this?’ another wrote.

A third follower added: ‘Wow! I don’t eat wraps ever because I am s**t at rolling them. You’re my hero!’

While Belinda’s hack is impressive, she didn’t come up with it herself. A blogger known as ‘Crystals Cooking Fun’ first shared the method on TikTok last month.
