Tightly wrapping a sandwich in parchment paper evenly compresses it on all sides, which has multiple benefits. The ingredients meld more fully than they would in a sandwich left to its own devices; it’s as if the pressure “cooks” them. And when you slice through the package, both halves remain absolutely intact. Here’s how to do it: 1. For a sandwich on standard-size sliced bread, use a 12″ × 16″ rectangle of paper. Place the sandwich in the center, and gather the ends of the paper above it.

2. Make a ½” fold, crease to secure, and repeat, drawing the paper tighter as you go. Brenda Weaver

3. When you reach the sandwich, fold the paper under once more and crease it from end to end. Brenda Weaver

4. While holding the top seam with your left hand, fold in the corners of the paper on the right side as if wrapping a present. Tuck the triangle snugly under the sandwich. Repeat on the left side. Brenda Weaver

5. Once the sandwich is wrapped, use a knife to slice through the paper across the center seam, halving the sandwich. Stack the halves and wrap in plastic wrap, or eat immediately. Either way, you’re left with a flawless sandwich. Brenda Weaver
