Best way to Keep Lunch Meat Fresh Longer!


I buy a lot of lunch meat, for sandwiches, wraps, recipe shortcuts like my Quick & Easy Green Beans.

I have found the best way to keep lunch meat fresh longer!

OK Here the trick…

Wax Paper! Wrap your lunch meat in Wax Paper

  • Use about 10″ piece of wax paper. Fold it into quarters
  • Then get another piece of wax paper about 12-14″. Place the wax paper that you folded onto the larger sheet
  • Place lunch meat on the folded piece of wax.

  • Wrap up the lunch meat & fold under
  • Place inside an airtight container
