  1. In a cast iron skillet (or griddle), coat with thin layer of extra virgin olive oil (or a cooking oil) and place over medium heat
  2. Once cast iron or griddle is at temp, carefully add assembled Crunchwrap folded side down; cooking until browned; once bottom side is browned, flip and brown top of Crunchwrap (about 30 seconds to 1 minute per side); remove and set aside; repeat for all assembled wraps
