A wrap sandwich is a variation of the traditional sandwich, with the same filling as the traditional sandwich, but wrapped in a soft tortilla instead of the usual bread. The bread can be pita or soft flour tortillas, tortillas with different flavors (chipotle, spinach, tomato-basil, etc.), pancakes, or even salad leaves. The filling is spread on the bread, which is then rolled or folded (sometimes wrapped in paper) and eaten raw or wrapped in cling film and cooked.
Compared to burgers and sandwiches, wraps are easier to carry around with you at mealtime, the filling is covered by the bread so it doesn’t fall on the floor, and the bread is thinner and fits better in your mouth. Just hold the wrapper firmly in your hand and chew slowly.
Like a sandwich, it can be filled with seafood such as salmon, chicken, bacon, ham, or shrimp and served with different dressings such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced olives, peppers, onions, cheese, honey mustard, mayonnaise, olive oil, vinegar, and herbs. Vegetarian wraps, made with only fresh vegetables and pickled mushrooms, are also a treat.
Wraps are becoming increasingly popular in restaurants that serve burgers and sandwiches. Many cafes now also offer wraps. Cold wraps are also a good choice for lunch meetings, packed lunches, picnics, and excursions. With a cup of coffee in one hand and a wrap in the other, you can sit comfortably in any corner and enjoy a friendly lunch.
Tips for Making Sandwiches for a Family Trip
Going on a big family trip? Maybe you’re going on a picnic, going to an amusement park, swimming, or even attending a sporting event. If you bring your own sandwiches, you can save a lot of money on a big family outing.
Here we explain how to make an easy sandwich to take along.
When we go out as a family, we always use sliced bread for our sandwiches. This is important for a number of reasons. There isn’t much room in most refrigerators once you’ve stored the drinks and ice. So four or five sandwiches on buns won’t fit. Plus, many kids don’t like Hoagie rolls. Finally, you can reuse bread wrappers as buttered bread bags.
This may sound silly, but we recommend that all sandwiches be identical. You can make a sandwich with ham and cheese on white bread or with turkey breast and cheese on wheat bread. Why not do it? If you eat one of the basic sandwiches, Uncle Joe won’t be able to eat the special Mac sandwich. This will save you unnecessary trouble when you are traveling with your family.
Keep sandwiches as simple as possible. The basics of a good sandwich are simply meat, cheese, and bread. Mayonnaise and mustard or lettuce and tomatoes can sweeten the bread. Wet sandwiches are not preferred. Buy a small package of mayonnaise or restaurant mustard and fill it with lettuce, tomatoes, and other condiments. You can also put all of this on the sandwich just before you eat it.
Butter the whole loaf, even if you are making a peanut butter sandwich. This is especially important if you are making the sandwich the night before a family outing. A small layer of butter or margarine keeps the bread from getting mushy. This little layer is ideal if you want to spread mustard on the sandwich.
Cut the sandwich in half, diagonally. This way, the kids can nibble on the best part of the sandwich. Once you have finished the sandwich in the middle, wrap it in the sandwich paper. This way you will have a napkin available when you hand out the sandwiches. Then stack them on top of each other in the bread wrapper. Place the spice packets on top and close the bread envelope.

If you are going to make different sandwiches, use different colored napkins to indicate the different types of sandwiches. You can cut the turkey and cheese in half at the top and bottom and cut the ham and cheese in half diagonally. That way you’ll know exactly what you’re getting, without it taking too much effort.
How about a hot dog for a family outing? Cook a hot dog and put it in a thermos of boiling water. That way, they’ll stay hot until you eat them. All you need is a hot dog bun and tongs to get the hot dog out of the thermos. Hotdogs are perfect for eating during sports or when it’s a little chilly outside.
That’s all you need to make the perfect sandwich for your next family outing. Of course, don’t forget to bring napkins, a side dish like potato salad and a drink.
