When she’s not entertaining the masses on national TV, it seems Belinda Russell is making a name for herself online as something of a hack queen.

The Today Extra host took to her TikTok and Instagram account today to share a nifty toastie trick she discovered while browsing the web and it blew her followers’ minds.

Belinda takes a wrap and instead of piling all the filling inside in the middle of it, she instead separates the fillings into each quarter.

Then, she makes a cut in the wrap and simply folds it so it creates a perfect toastie. Watch the video below to see it for yourself.

“So clever BR. It was 11 pm and I had to try it and guess what, it was yummy, thanks , you the best,” one person commented.

“That is awesome!! Why am I so excited about this?” another person said, with another asking: “Are you doing take away?”

Another person simply called Belinda’s toastie tutorial a “game changer”.

One other person pointed out that the video in fact showed two hacks, with the second being how Belinda toasted the wrap.

Instead of putting it directly onto the sandwich press, she first lined it with baking paper and then also put the paper on top of the wrap when she put it in the press.

“Absolutely brilliant. Paper on the sandwich press,” the commenter said.
