The viral ‘game changing’ wrap hack has been the ‘must-try food trick’ of 2021 – and now it has undergone an early-morning makeover.
This comes after the hack, which requires home cooks to cut the wrap from the centre to the edge and place ingredients in neat quarters so it is easy to fold and toast, was re-purposed to make a dessert, a cheese and tomato toastie and quesadillas.
The viral trend even got a spot on television as popular channel Nine presenter Belinda Russell revealed she loves the simple trick.
The most recent adaptation of the hack has been used to make a mouth-watering breakfast.
TikTokker Grace Hamlin cut the wrap from the centre to the edge before adding a hashbrown, bacon, scrambled eggs and mayonnaise in each quarter.
She then folds over the wrap, starting with the hash brown and working clockwise around the wrap.
The delicious breakfast makeover of the hack appeared popular – but some people thought it should have cheese and barbecue sauce inside.
‘The mayonnaise ruined it,’ said one woman.
‘I would suggest caramalised onion relish,’ said one man.
Another person suggested they needed to go to the shops for wraps and hash browns immediately.
Another popular variation of the wrap is the dessert wrap.
Tiktokker Lil_lyonsy shouted out to Crystalscookingfun – the original hack sharer – with her sweet creation.
The woman videoed herself using Nutella, strawberries and marshmallows for the snack.
She cut the wrap, like in the original hack, added Nutella in the first and third quarters, strawberries in the second and marshmallows at the end.
She then wrapped it clockwise from the cut starting with the Nutella segment.
She then put the wrap on the toaster until the marshmallow began to ooze out.

43,000 people liked the video many commenting what they would add to the wrap.
‘I would use bananas instead of marshmallow,’ one person said.
Others suggested custard would be perfect on the dessert wrap.
Recently he ‘Feel Good Foodie’ showed off her spicy twist on the very popular trick on Instagram.
She adds egg, avocado, salsa and cheese to her wrap before folding it from the cut until it resembles a triangle.
She then heated the wrap in a skillet instead of a sandwich press, before cutting it in half and eating on camera.
People loved the fresh twist on the wrap hack and told her it looked ‘amazing’.
The hack first went viral when a woman posted a video on her ‘Crystals Cooking Fun’ TikTok account which shows her making a small cut in the wrap from the centre to the outside edge.
She then lays down the filling for the wrap, starting with laying down some chicken, on the quarter before the cut.
Following this, she continues in a clockwise direction putting down lettuce, tomato and cheese in each other quarter.
She then covers the chicken with sauce and begins to fold over the wrap.
Lifting from the cut edge she pulls the lettuce onto the tomato.
Crystal continues to fold the salad over the cheese and then finally over the chicken.
She was left with a triangle-shaped parcel which can be toasted easily.
The woman’s handy hack was ‘liked’ over 31,000 times in the first 15 hours.
Days later channel Nine star delighted her fans with the same hack, using ham, cheese, tomato and avocado.
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.
